Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Award-winning author of The Shipping News and superlative short stories such as “Brokeback Mountain” and the collection Fine Just the Way It Is: Wyoming Stories 3.
“The wild country–indigo jags of mountain, grassy plain everlasting, tumbled stones like fallen cities, the flaring roll of sky–provokes a spiritual shudder. It is like a deep note that cannot be heard but is felt, it is like a claw in the gut…
…Other cultures have camped here a while and disappeared. Only earth and sky matter. Only the endlessly repeated flood of morning light. You begin to see that God does not owe us much beyond that.”
— Annie Proulx (Close Range : Wyoming Stories)
