I read this pretty quickly and enjoyed it. While the movie is immensely better than the story it was still great to see the original source material for the movie. I liked this book and would recommend it to anyone that wants to compare the script to the original. Also there are some phenomenal essays by other people that were involved with the movie in this particular edition as well. ( )

Annie Proulx's celebrated story is published here alongside the award-winning screenplay of Brokeback Mountain by Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana.

Jack Twist and Ennis del Mar live hard and lonely lives as ranch hands in the wild, unforgiving landscape of Wyoming. They are country boys with no prospects, brought up to hard work and privation, both rough-mannered and tough-spoken, glad to have found one another's company where none had been expected. But suddenly companionship becomes something else on Brokeback Mountain: something not looked for, something deadly.… (more)
