My favorites of the bunch include the premature funeral for an old Indian from the local reservation, the long suffering of a ranch wife who literally spills the beans on her husband, an elderly recluse's long-distance romance with a young woman, a mid-winter trip to town that evolves, thanks to a cowboy's gambling winnings, into a days-long bacchanal in a hotel room, and a husband and wife's indecision about whether to sell the ranch. Smith, the title character, is vividly drawn, perfectly believable, and as likable as he can be obtuse. The others, his wife Norah, sons Sherwood and Roosevelt, Arch McGregor, Morton Dilloughboy and his son Abel, cowboy Henry James, Ol Antoine the Indian patriarch, Frenchie and Frenchie's wife (who gets her own story), and Ken Larsen, whose arch-conservative values are no obstacle to his loyalty to the Liberal Party, all of them are equally memorable. Find a copy, kick off your boots, and enjoy.
