Bad Dirt: Wyoming Stories 2

by Annie Proulx

More short stories set in Wyoming!

Highlights include: The Hellhole, a brief and magical tale about a game warden who discovers a special place for people who break the rules; Dump Junk, a story which centers around the cleaning of a dead relative's home and a magic tea kettle, and Man Crawling Out of Trees, a realistic look at life for an East Coast couple and their unsuccessful relocation to Wyoming.

Her first collection of Wyoming stories, Close Range, is much better. This collection is disappointing.
