Hard ground III: writing the rockies, an anthology of contemporary life in the Rocky Mountain region
A collection of selected works submitted to Pronghorn Press's Annual Hard Ground Writing Contest, this volume reflects a complex range of feelings about the West of today. In 57 pieces of both poetry and prose 32 writers explore the many aspects of contemporary life in this unique region of the country. Abundant wildlife is still a part of life in today's West and you will read of the roundup of pronghorns with the modern convenience of a helicopter as well the raven seen in a somewhat different light. The joys of rural life come through in stories of wild asparagus and the rush of water into a dry canal. Ghostly phantoms along a lonely stretch of highway, the loss of family through death, through disease and through just plain cussedness, the love of the land and the silence and peace of wide open spaces are all part of this West.Through the eyes of these writers we catch a glimpse of what the West is today, the true West in all its many meanings and manifestations.
