A deeply American story, "The Eleventh Man" is Ivan Doig's most powerful novel to date.
Ivan Doig was born in Montana in 1939 and grew up along the Rocky Mountain Front, the dramatic landscape that has inspired much of his writing. A recipient of a lifetime Distinguished Achievement Award from the Western Literature Association, he is the author of eight previous novels, most recently The Whistling Season, and three works of nonfiction, including This House of Sky. He lives in Seattle.
ADVANCE PRAISE FOR THE ELEVENTH MAN "The Eleventh Man is about loyalty and survival and sacrifice--and love--and remains intensely suspenseful and moving throughout."--Scott Turow PRAISE FOR THE WHISTLING SEASON "Doig is in the best sense an old-fashioned novelist: You feel as if you're in the hands of an absolute expert at story-making, a hard-hewn frontier version of Walter Scott or early Dickens."--O, The Oprah Magazine "Courageous . . . charming . . . When a voice as pleasurable as [Doig's] evokes a lost era, somehow it doesn't seem so lost after all."--The Washington Post Book World
