Bird Cloud: A Memoir

Bird Cloud: A Memoir - Annie Proulx This is essentially a diary of the purchase and construction of Annie Proulx's new home in a remote stretch of Wyoming. Fans of her fiction will recognize the tight, deeply researched and descriptive prose, but I came away wishing I'd invested the time in the only Proulx work of fiction I haven't yet read. That said, this is deeply researched and well written, and the history of the area - and the abuses visited upon the land by stockmen - is engrossing. I'd suggest this book is best read by Proulx fans and not those in search of her next great literary work.
