Last Bus To Wisdom is a Western that takes place in 1951. Donal Cameron is a precocious 11-year-old boy, who is sent to his great aunt in Wisconsin. After some amusing adventures on the Greyhound Bus (setting the tone of the book), ‘Donnie’ meets The Kate and her German boyfriend. And then the adventures begin as he’s escapes back to the ‘Wild West’.
Doig gets all the characters right: Cowboys, Indians, Hobos, and Ranchers. The story is great fun and I enjoy reading about Fargo, even if they’re just driving through.
