Book: "The English Major" by Jim Harrison

This was a quick, enjoyable read by one of my favorite authors. Cliff, in his sixties, taught high school for 10 years, then spent 25 years farming in northern Michigan on his wife's family farm. When the wife divorces him and sells the farm he goes on a road trip where he meets up with one of his former students, sexually voracious but mentally unstable Marybelle. He embarks on a project to rename the states after the Indian tribes who had inhabited them, and to rename the state birds.

Rating: *** (out of 5)
