Ivan Doig’s 16 original works, published between 1978 and 2015, remain popular with readers today. Whether fiction or non-fiction, his books provide a window into western history generally, and a way into Montana in particular, where Doig spent his childhood.

The list below features first-edition artwork and includes the author’s 3 nonfiction books, beginning with his breakthrough memoir, This House of Sky: Landscapes of a Western Mind (1978); as well as his 13 fiction works, including his well-known McCaskill Trilogy -- English Creek (1984), Dancing at the Rascal Fair (1987), and Ride with Me, Mariah Montana (1990) -- set along the Rocky Mountain front in northern Montana. Doig’s final novel, Last Bus to Wisdom (2015), offers a picaresque story of a boy and his great uncle as they explore the very real and mythic West of the mid-20th century.
