Close Range: Wyoming Stories - Annie Proulx - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Close Range:

Stories of the wilderness that is Wyoming.

My favorite Annie Proulx quote from the book:

"Only earth and sky matter."

Questions to ponder while reading Close Range:

Can you find solace in the desolate?

Can you find beauty in the stark?

My review of Close Range:

I loved the descriptions.

Well-crafted tales.

A Wyoming road trip is in order.
