Readers of Annie Proulx’s fiction will be familiar with the angry skies of southern Wyoming. They provide a backdrop for three collections of short stories (Close Range, Bad Dirt and Fine Just the Way It Is), as well as Brokeback Mountain. Now Pulitzer-winner Proulx returns to Wyoming, this time with a work of non-fiction.
