Buffalo Coatby Carol Ryrie Brink, Mary E. Reed (Foreword by)
Originally published in 1944, Carol Brink's first adult novel, Buffalo Coat, has become a classic of Northwest literature. Three doctors came to Opportunity (Moscow), Idaho, in the 1890s, drawn by the town-name's promise. All attained their private objectives and financial success in the community, symbolized by owning a great buffalo coat to wear through the bitter winters. And yet for these men there was irony in the name Opportunity, since each of their lives ended in tragedy.
