The Big Rock Candy Mountain

Characters è The Big Rock Candy Mountain ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Wallace Stegner à 6 Review Download ¹ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB à Wallace Stegner Ays than thirty years in the life of the Mason family in this masterful harrowing saga of people trying to survive during the lean years of the early twentieth century. I can in all honesty not say that this was one of my heartfelt best books ever But can say convincingly that it was an excellent autbiographical novel Perhaps there was a scattering of way too much words all over the tale Too long Too wordy So many novels have been written about the American west and the deeper meaning behind the search for get uick rich schemes the big rock candy mountain over the next rise something for nothing an improved world andor get away from man s own nature It often left the dreams shattered but the dreamers determined the longer they tried to find the pot of gold at the end of an ever elusive rainbow the further it moved out west I have great respect for this well known author for pouring out the good and bad memories into this personal tale of his life as part of his drifter family in the early twentieth century They followed the old Scandinavian tracts through the north west It must have been very painful to relate and share his memories to throw open his hurt anger frustrations heartbreak and embarrassment to a public he doesn t even know if he could trust However I do believe that it brought the clich d closure for himself and made him proud of the choices he made to overcome his personal family history Well he had so much to be proud of in the end If the bad was genetic the good was in there as well He just had to fill up the spaces between it How difficult was it to flesh out the characters their intimate lives their thoughts so that he could ensure understanding from himself and his readers of his grandparents and parents decisions The frontier the family was on was a belated one in the 1914 20s in Saskatchewan They were almost literary reproducing the Kansas frontier of the 1860s Boredom never entered the author s Huckleburry Finn world as a child his own description of his world His mother kept his brother and himself cultured as far as their constanct moving allowed His father was a folklore character with an explosive temper His brother who died young was on his way to become a successful athlete if it wasn t for his father s constant bootlegging to keep food on the table A whiff of scandal surrounded the family as a result of his father s contstant new schemes with shady and dubious partners In an interview Wallace Stegner said that they were deprived of civilisation in many respects and he had to try and catch up with it his entire life He has been in an acronysm all his life as a result He always felt like a nineteen century character caught in the twentieth century Wallace Stegner s roots were deeply established in the American west This novel is about their experiences in painful detail He created realistic characters to establish a believable trustworthy tale and leave the reader with a sense of awe but also empathy for those drifters who shaped modern America in so many ways This book is indeed about The Big Rock Candy Mountain and those people who took it on It is also about loyalty in a family and how destructive and intricate it becomes Hopeful but sad book For me at least Totally beside the point I noticed that Ken Kessey was one of Wallace Stegner s students in Creative Writing One Flew Over The Cuckoo s Nest is certainly one of the most iconic American novels ever written and for sure the best shameful example of how an author was screwed out of his words big time by his publishers who robbed him of his rights to royalties While the book is still in reprint for probably a millionth time selling even millions of copies Ken Kessey did not share in the bounty it generated In fact he hardly survived financially from other means of income he had to find until he passed away I am thus so grateful for Wallace Stegner who made such a big difference to other people s lives after everything he had gone through in his own life This book is worth a read It nestles as much in the historical fiction genre as being an autobiographical novel at the same time

Summary The Big Rock Candy Mountain

Characters è The Big Rock Candy Mountain ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Wallace Stegner à 6 Review Download ¹ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB à Wallace Stegner Bo Mason his wife Elsa and their two boys live a transient life of poverty and despair Drifting from town to town and from state to state the violent ruthless Bo seeks. Reading Wallace Stegner is like having a really great first boyfriend He ruins you for anyone who comes later Sometimes he s so good that you don t even want anyone after him The Big Rock Candy Mountain is the book that should have won Stegner the Pulitzer Prize long before he wrote Angle of Repose I ve read commentary indicating that Big Rock Candy Mountain is largely autobiographical If that is true my heart aches for the little boy that was Wallace Stegner Perhaps those early painful experiences were what made him the soulful and understanding author we loveStegner is the conductor for the music of my heart Maybe someday I ll figure out how to write reviews that adeuately convey what he does for me
