Best-selling author of Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight, Alexandra Fuller presents this heart-rending true story of a simple man whose life is cut short.

Colton H. Bryant loves Wyoming and loves life. And Wyoming loves him back - it's got everything he needs. He spends his school days dreaming about where he'll go fishing or how many jackrabbits he might be able to catch that night. And when he's old enough, like his father and his father's father before him, he gets a dangerous job on the oil rig. Colton always said everyone would feel sorry one day for making him waste all that time in school, and Colton was right. Download and start listening now!

    " Spellbinding. Whether one loves the idea of living in the middle of the West or is simply into a fantastical humanistic exploration of one man's struggles through life, this book will lead you on a journey that ultimately explores what it means to be human. It is, to quote Dave Eggers, "A heart-breaking work of staggering genius." "

    " I have laways like Fuller's prose. This book marks an evolution on her part from her first memoir, to her "Scribbling the Cat" which was a cross between memoir and literary journalism, to this as literary journalism. She has a refined narrative sense in this account of a roughneck who works and dies in the gas fields of Wyoming. "

    " As if I needed more evidence, this book certainly made it clear that Fuller writes splendidly about anything (not just her childhood in Africa). It took me to Montana today so viscerally I almost feel I've lived there. Colton and his family and the gas-extraction industry are seared into my memory. And Fuller's sensitivity and toughness staggered me anew. "

    " This is a beautiful book. I had a bit of trouble getting into it a first, then I became absorbed. The writing is very rich and deep. Fuller's description of the Wyoming countryside, mining life, and the character details of Colton Bryant are wonderful. I grew to admire and love Colton H. Bryant! "
