Brokeback Mountain (novel)



Summary: Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist, two ranch hands, come together when they're working as sheepherder and camp tender one summer on a range above the tree line. At first, sharing an isolated tent, the attraction is casual, inevitable, but something deeper catches them that summer. Both men work hard, marry, and have kids because that's what cowboys do. But over the course of many years and frequent separations this relationship becomes the most important thing in their lives, and they do anything they can to preserve it.

Review: This is the original story that was used for the new film. I was weeping by the end of it, it was so good. Even though it was originally a short story it was rereleased for the film in novella format, and I couldn't be gladder. It kind of makes me want to read more of Proulx's work, gay cowboys or not involved.

Final Review: A++
