Wow, the first topic I "created" :-)

For Wyoming read Annie Proulx's Close range and Bad dirt.
They're both beautiful collections of short stories.

Does either have Brokeback Mountain? I enjoyed the movie (as depressing at it ended) and would like to read the original story.

Yes, Close range has Brokeback Mountain in it, and it is one of the best short stories I have ever read. Most of the other stories are somewhat supernatural, but I think still beautiful and really bring across the "Wyoming feeling".

I believe An Unfinished Life by Mark Spragg takes place in Wyoming.

I recently discovered a series set in Wyoming that seems to evoke the spaces, wind, weather and mountains that I remember from a brief road trip through a corner of the state. There are eight or nine books devoted to Sheriff Longmire, by Craig Johnson. (Also a TV series, which I have not seen).
