Annie Proulx's celebrated story is published here alongside the award-winning screenplay of Brokeback Mountain by Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana. Also included are three essays by the authors and film stills which capture the haunting sweep of Ang Lee's epic major motion picture. 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.
