Book Review: Bird Cloud By Annie Proulx (42)

 

 

 

Bird Cloud is a wonderful book that is written as a memoir. It is about Annie’s days in the Wyoming wetlands. The book captures all the nuances of time and place, and it will transport the reader to an oasis of magic and seclusion like no other.

On the day that she first visited North Platte River, a cloud in the shape of a bird hung in the evening sky. It totally captivated her, and she fell in love with the land. It was then owned by the Nature Conservancy. But she knew that it would be the perfect place for her to write and build a life of seclusion and calm for herself. The place actually was one that was in harmony with her work, appetites, and character. If only we could all find such a place!

Bird Cloud is the story of creating this heavenly oasis in the midst of the natural history and archaeology of the area which is so seeped in history and beauty.

I loved the book from beginning to end. It transported me into the world of the writer, whose whole life is writing. I just loved it being a writer myself.
