Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist, two ranch hands, come together when they’re working as sheepherder and camp tender one summer on a range above the tree line. At first, sharing an isolated tent, the attraction is casual, inevitable, but something deeper catches them that summer. Both men work hard, marry, and have kids because that’s what cowboys do. But over the course of many years and frequent separations this relationship becomes the most important thing in their lives, and they do anything they can to preserve it.

If you want to request something you DON’T find in our catalog, try searching the NH Union Public Access Catalog or NHU-PAC (link on the left). You can check to see if what you want is available anywhere in other NH libraries. Note that it WILL tell you about UNH, but it WON’T tell you what Dartmouth has. If you can’t find it, send us an  e-mail with the title, author if available, format (book, DVD, CD), publishing date if you know it. If you have the time, tell us how you heard about it. We’ll call you when it’s in or to tell you that we can’t get it for you, usually the former.
