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. (Rebroadcast)
