Bird Cloud

Bird Cloud by Annie Proulx
February 1, 2011

Proulx's first work of nonfiction in more than twenty years, Bird Cloud is the story of designing and constructing a house. It is also an enthralling natural history and archaeology of the Wyoming region

--inhabited for millenia by Ute, Arapaho and Shoshone Indians--and a family history, going back to 19th century Mississippi riverboat captains and Canadian settlers.
