I struggled with rating this collection Do I rate on the uality of writing the uality of the stories or how they made me feelProulx excels at writing about rural life in describing the environment people and regional dialects whether on the shores of Newfoundland in The Shipping News Texas and Oklahoma in That Old Ace in the Hole or rural Wyoming of her Wyoming Tales For example in this collection describing the drought of a Wyoming summer in Them Old Cowboy Songs she writes July was hot the air vibrating the land dry like a scraped sheep s hoof The sun drew the color from everything and the Little Weed trickled through dull stones In month even that trickle would be dried by the hot river rocks the grass parched and preachers praying for rainIn the same story she describes some of the cowboys of the Karok ranch Men raised from infancy around horses could identify salient differences with a glance but some had a keener talent for understanding euine temperament the others Sink Gatrell was one of the those the polar opposite of Montana bronc buster Wally Finch who used a secret ghost cord and made unrideable outlaws of the horses he was breaking Sink gave off a hard air of competence On roundup the elegant Brit remittance man Morton Frewen had once noticed him handling a nervous cloud watcher horse and remarked that the rider had divine hands Finally Family Man gives a feel for Proulx command of dialect One time Joe knocked Harry out kicked him into he Platte He could of drowned probably would of but Dave Arthur was riding along the river seen this bundle of rags snarled up in the cottonwood sweeper it had fell in the river and caught up all sorts of river trashHarry was about three uarter dead never was right after that neither But right enough to know his own brother had meant to kill him How couldn t never tell if Harry was going to be around the next corner with a chunk of wood or a gun It s no surprise that this the awarding winning writer can write Why then in this collection of essentially old west tales does she choose to include three throw away tales completely out of character with the rest of the collection that read like jokes vs serious writing Two feature the Devil planning updates to Hell Construction workers the Devil shouted Their hard hats will melt the scaffolds collapse unceasingly Ice cream truck vendors A hot coal in each scoop of vanilla The third a carnivorous cactusReallyAnd then there is the utter despair with which each of the real stories ends Family Man The elderly Ray Forkenbrock laments his father allowing he and mother to live in poverty while fathering and supporting families with several other women across the region Them Old Cowboy Songs Young couple homesteading on the Wyoming frontier is forced to separate so the husband can find work The husband freezes to death trying to return to his wife while the wife dies in child birth The Great Divide Proverty stricken family loses father to kick by a horse Testimony of the Donkey Hiker becomes trapped and dies of exposure on an abandoned trailAnd the most miserable of the bunch Tits Up in a Ditch Improvished woman marries slacker who abandons her while pregnant to join the military She later joins leaving her son with her parents Has her arm blown off in Ira and returns home to find her son dead and her disfigured and vegetative husband dropped on her doorstep to care for Proulx needs a chill pillBottomline Threeish stars for the collection in total the serious stories are each three to four stars the throw ways ones and twos Downgrade by one star for the hopelessness in each of the serious works and complete stupidity of the the throw aways Net two stars for me one for each dollar I spent on this book I would have regretted spending On my buy borrow skip scale Skip

Fine Just the Way It Is: Wyoming Stories 3 review ´ 3 Bold inimitable language her exhilarating eye for detail her dark sense of humor and her compassion inform this profoundly compelling collection of stories Proulx creates a fierce visceral panorama of American folly and fate in these nine dazzling stories about multiple generations of Americans struggling through life. Well these are not happy stories I ll get that out of the way But man can this woman write I ve read everything she has written starting back with The Shipping News Actually not She had a couple of lesser known efforts before that and some works of non fiction But all the fiction since The Shipping News I ve been hoping she would come out with a new novel I don t remember her novels as being this dark And I believe she has something being released in 2015 Don t know if it is a novel I hope so This is the third book of Wyoming stories Her use of language is astonishing Her feel for the landscape and understanding of the people she writes about are remarkable When I think of Mississippi I think immediately of Faulkner When I think of Wyoming I think of Proulx And even with the darkness of the subject matter there is a wry sardonic sense of humor in the work as well She is one of those few American writers that if she brings out a new book I have to read it I don t know why it took me so long to get to this one Slipped under my radar somehow My wife s theory is that she is working clandestinely for the Wyoming Chamber of Commerce Her mission being to discourage people from moving there The title of this collection Fine Just the Way It Is might support that argument

Fine Just the Way It Is: Wyoming Stories 3 review ´ 3 In the West Each character is a pioneer of a sort some are billionaires some are escapists and some just think the rest of the country has it wrong Deeply sympathetic to the men and women fighting to survive in this harsh place Proulx turns their lives into fiction with the power of myth leaving the reader in awe  . 25 this was a rough ride the writing itself is often beautiful and the characters are portrayed in a very empathetic way but that s about all i can say for this collection of short stories the mood tone topic and setting varies a lot in each story and there s little cohesion besides the titular phrasesentiment not good to read if you are already sad
