From the Publisher:
The author describes her purchase of six hundred wilderness acres in Wyoming and construction of a library-centric home where she contemplated her rich family history, including a river boat captain ancestor who met historical figures.
In this memoir, Annie Proulx documents the years she spent building her personalized abode on a 640-acre range in southeastern Wyoming. Bird Cloud is the name she gave the property. Conceiving of a custom home to fit both her ideals and the landscape, the celebrated writer of novels set in the harsh western terrain designed the estate as a monument to her book collection as much as a living space. Proulx etches the pages with tributes to the land's history as well, detailing its geological lifts and floods and the migrations of animals and Native Americans that shaped her territory long before she found it.
Author Bio
Annie Proulx
Born in Connecticut, Annie Proulx grew up in a family of sisters in various parts of New England and in North Carolina. Her mother was a painter. Proulx loved the outdoors, including canoeing and fishing, and wrote for outdoor-life magazines as a journalist for 20 years before she became a fiction writer. She studied history, first at the University of Vermont (B.A., 1969), then at George Williams University in Montreal (M.A., 1973). She has lived in Vermont and, more recently, Wyoming. She has been married and divorced three times and has three sons. Proulx, who began writing (bored by a childhood illness) at the age of 10, published her first novel, POSTCARDS, in 1992; it won a PEN/Faulkner award. THE SHIPPING NEWS won the National Book Award and the 1994 Pulitzer Prize for fiction.
