Publisher's Summary

This is the film tie-in edition of the story by Annie Proulx, now a movie starring Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, Randy Quaid, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Williams.

Brokeback Mountain is set in the beautiful, wild landscape of Wyoming where cowboys live as they have done for generations. Hard, lonely lives in unforgiving country. Jack Twist and Ennis del Mar are two ranch hands, "drop-out country boys with no prospects, brought up to hard work and privation, both rough-mannered, tough spoken", glad to have found each other's company where none had been expected. But companionship becomes something else on Brokeback Mountain, something not looked for, something deadly.

What the Critics Say

"A timeless story that stands up to repeated listening and will stay with listeners long after they've finished the hour-long [audio]." (AudioFile)
"Proulx's understanding is at its most remarkable in the astonishing Brokeback Mountain. [She] knows what she could only know...by the infrared that allows a very few writers clear sight in the dark of the imagination." (New York Times Book Review)

    "Surprising different, and touching"

    I belong to a book club and this was the latest nominated book for us to read. I had of course heard of the film and vaguely knew the storyline. I liked the voice of the narrator which is always a good start with an audio book. How refreshing to listen to a what is basically a love story but yet so different , not simply because it is of two men but because of the lifestyle, era and society that they lived in. A thoroughly good read and very touchingly intense.
