Abstract

taking a job at a cafe caUed the Old Dog, Bob is able to communicate two exotic tarantulas as pets. After shares with his lover--with Bake- lite products. with the locals who have spent theU stories about the old days and learns how the natives feel about corporate hog farms--unreceptive: "'Hog farms create uninhabitable zones just as sure as if land mines was planted kind a right come into the panhandle and wreck it for the people rooted there?'" The stories the locals of Wooly- bucket have to tell are often more entire Uves in Woolybucket. He hears interesting than Bob Dollar. And, as always with her work, Proulx's descriptions of the land are breath- taking. Take this, for example: "And it was crazy country too, some of the flattest terrain on earth, trac- there. Does a corporation have any tor-chewed and rectangled, rugged breaks and plunging canyons, and red grass--the oddly named bluestem." One walks away from the novel feeling as if the landscape were the central character--more so than Bob Dollar. While fending off the inquiring letters and phone calls from his employer, Ribeye Cluke, who cares more for the progression of the sinister clouds too
