UW Professor's Book Selected for Reading Series

February 1, 2010
Book cover
"Ghosts of Wyoming," written by UW Professor Alyson Hagy.

University of Wyoming Professor Alyson Hagy's new book, "Ghosts of Wyoming," has been chosen by the Mountains and Plains Booksellers Association as itsFebruary selection for the "Reading the West" series.

Described as "an unsentimental vision of the West, old and new," Hagy's book explores the hardscrabble lives and terrain of America's least-populous state. "Ghosts of Wyoming" explores both the state's colorful pioneer past and brings to life the not-often-heard voices of oil field workers, rock climbers and those left behind by the latest boom and bust. The book also updates several traditional ghost stories set in Wyoming

"Ghosts of Wyoming" is published by Graywolf Press. It is Hagy's sixth work of fiction. Hagy has taught at UW since 1996. Her most recent novel, "Snow, Ashes," won prizes from both the Wyoming State Historical Society and the High Plains Literary Awards.
