Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE LEGEND OF COLTON H BRYANT by Alexandra Fuller.

“Fuller’s re-creation of the brief life of Colton H. Bryant is the story of a third-generation oil-patch worker in Wyoming. Spotlessly capturing the distinctive scenes from his life, Fuller takes readers into the Bryant family and the small-town community and oil rigs they inhabited. To know Colton, who “has a way of tearing out of the chute, firing with all hooves at once,” one must experience him, and Fuller, with pinpoint detailing and a deadeye aim on Wyoming dialect, teases out a portrait of a young man that is staggering in its spareness, and heartbreaking in its tenderness. But, “like all westerns, this story is a tragedy before it even starts because there was never a way for anyone to win against all the odds out here.” The stacked deck belongs to the oil companies, of course, and the lesson learned from Colton’s life and death is that human life is small change and protecting it isn’t in the best interest of profit. Although it’s little consolation, Fuller’s deeply moving celebration of Colton’s life is bursting with humor, love, and tragedy, like all that is best in life, and without ever having met him, you won’t soon forget Colton H. Bryant.”
