    Top stories in this collection for me were Annie Proulx s The Sagebrush Kid fantasy horror humor from Annie Proulx , Don Waters s Mormons in Heat, Louise Erdrich The Reptile Garden, and Jeffrey Chapman s Great Salt Lake, but there s good variety in this collection despite having two stories about wild mustangs auctioned off by the Bureau of Land Management and something for every lover of a good short story.
