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.

"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)
