Publisher's Summary

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.

Another Disappointment

I loved Ms. Fuller's autobiography "Don't Let's go to the Dogs Tonight" and have been disappointed by her later books. Her description of both the characters and the landscape were so overblown that -rather than awe, which I think she was striving for-I felt bored, even though I know and love the area in Wyoming she writes about. The narrator, with his golly gee approach and ridiculous laugh didn't help.
