USA flag (b.1970)

When Craig Lancaster moved to Montana in 2006, at the age of 36, it was the realization of a dream hed harbored since childhood, one that he figured had been overtaken by events, as so many dreams are.

Craig was born in Lakewood, Washington. Adopted at birth, he grew up in suburban Fort Worth, Texas, with his mother and stepfather and siblings. His stepfather, Charles Clines, was a longtime sportswriter at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, a connection that led to Craigs career as a journalist, a profession he followed to a series of newspaper jobs across the country Texas, Alaska, Kentucky, Ohio, Washington, California and, finally, Montana.

Judith Arnold
"Please make a point of meeting the Gillman family. Scott, the husband and father, is busy saving the world from the ravages of climate change by pedaling his recumbent bike around the United States on a summer-long tour. His wife, Ellie, and daughters Misha and Abbie, are busy saving everything else. Judith Arnold is such a terrific writer and such a gifted observer of American family life. She sees and illuminates the everyday drama of friendships, plugged toilets, weather-related mishaps, and workplace treacheries. As the titular "Girls Aloud" confront the rigors of getting by without the immediate presence of Scott, they come to the slow realization that they're neither powerless nor hobbled. Indeed, they have talents to assert, love to share, and a recasting of the order to impose. Arnold's fine prose--always on point, occasionally hilarious, never intrusive--carries the story along with a knowing and deft touch. This is a fine novel."
