Morrie Morgan, the itinerant teacher, walking encyclopedia, and inveterate charmer last seen leaving a one-room schoolhouse in Marias Coulee, the stage he stole in Ivan Doig’s 2006 The Whistling Season. A decade later, Morrie is back in Montana, as the beguiling narrator of Work Song.
This book is the sequel to The Whistling Season. Although I liked The Whistling Season better, this was a good story. Everyone in town has an opinion about the newcomer, Morrie the main protagonist . From the boarding house landlady to the Librarian to the owner of the copper mine, everyone is suspicious of Morrie.
