it was amazing
bookshelves: biography, oil

I first read Alexandra Fuller years ago, and loved her "Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight," her autobiography about growing up in Africa during the Rhodesian civil war.

I was pleasantly surprised to see this new title from her, and it is beautiful in its own right.

Colton H. Bryant's family always worked in oil, and he followed in the tradition. Colton found work on oil rigs in rural Wyoming, and enjoyed a simple yet fulfilling life, filled with adventure, friends and family.

In 2006, his life was cut short when he fell off his rig, due to his company's lack of safety enforcements.

Fuller interviews Colton's inner circle, and pieces together a beautiful story of a young life cut short by tragedy.

Crying. And I don't cry much.
