Reviews

"With every word on the page, Proulx pays homage to a rugged and magnificent Wyoming place--as well as to its surroundings, history, topography, geology and animals.... Proulx shares a part of her soul with the publication of Bird Cloud.... Beautiful and profound."--Buffalo News
"Gorgeous descriptions... Unforgettable anecdotes."--Alexandra Fuller, New York Times Book Review
"Annie Proulx has a wit as sharp as the winter winds of Wyoming."--Bob Minzesheimer, USA Today
