Blood Water Wind and Stone

Blood, Water, Wind, and Stone

blood, water, wind, and stone

Experience the American frontier

Wyoming is the least-populated state in America. It is filled with long, silent stretches of prairie. The mountains see snowfall every month of the year and the red desert is filled with a fossilized past. This vastness and isolation urges you to stop and contemplate your place in this landscape. Learn what you have to offer for its care through the gripping prose, fiction, and poetry.

The writing in Blood, Water, Wind, and Stone relates what it is like to live at the intersection between human lives and needs. It expresses it in the environment of the high plains and the mountains. The book mingles our ephemeral blood with the shaping forces of water, wind, and stone.

Quote from Garter Snakes on the Dike

“One of the boons of living in Teton County, Wyoming, is that no poisonous snakes are native here. There are certainly dangers. Grizzly bears have extended their range from the north, rendering encounters more frequent. Even a native black bear may turn rogue. Mountain lions pose a risk now and again. Coyotes may savage your untended dog. But there are no poisonous snakes.”
