Salt Lake City, UT – In her new book, Alexandra Fuller writes about the simple life and heartbreaking death of a roughneck working on a Wyoming oil patch. "The Legend of Colton H. Bryant" explores the impact Wyoming's stark, rugged terrain has on a person's character and the effect of the oil and gas industry on rural communities. Fuller joins guest host Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about one man's abbreviated life and the human costs of energy development.

Alexandra Fuller will be at the Uinta County Library (35 Tenth St) in Evanston, Wyoming this evening. A reception begins at 5:30, and Fuller's audience Q & A and book signing begins at 6:00. For more information, click here
