The Legend of Colton H. Bryant
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
A heartrending story of the human spirit from the author of the bestselling Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight
Alexandra Fuller returns with the unforgettable true story of Colton H. Bryant, a soulful boy with a mustang-taming heart who comes of age in the oil fields and open plains of Wyoming. After surviving a sometimes cruel adolescence with his own brand of optimistic goofiness, Colton goes to work on an oil rig-and there the biggest heart in the world can't save him from the new, unkind greed that has possessed his beloved Wyoming during the latest boom.
Colton's story could not be told without telling of the land that grew him, where the great high plains meet the Rocky Mountains to create a vista of lonely beauty. It is here that the existence of one boy is a true story as deeply moving as the life that inspired it.

A must read
I love this book, and have been impatient to read more by Alexandra Fuller. A beautiful, harsh, passionate talented writer in the mold of Hemingway and Joyce. She is a keen observer of people and places and cultures, and writes in inimitable flowing prose.
