He hails from Wyoming, and likes to read stories about cowboys and their horses. He's been my most faithful consumer of Louis L'Amour this summer. Today he checked out Close Range by E. Annie Proulx and All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy. Don't know yet whether Proulx's story "Brokeback Mountain" will be more than Eric can handle or not. Pretty sure L'Amour never wrote 2 cowboy characters that fell in love. But I could be wrong.
