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."--BOOK JACKET.Proulx, Annie is the author of 'Brokeback Mountain Secreto En La Montana/ Secret in the Mountain', published 2005 under ISBN 9780743275309 and ISBN 0743275306.
