Bird Cloud – or "Broke Bank House", as I'm sure Annie Proulx was not tempted to call it – is the story of how a great and ageing American writer came across a 640-acre spread of land in Wyoming, bought it and set about designing and building (more accurately, having people build) her ideal house on it. Books are like homes, too, and within 10 pages of crossing the threshold of this one readers will put up their feet, secure in the knowledge that they won't be moving on to another any time soon.
The resemblances of the Bird Cloud property to Uluru are several, though perhaps a little far-fetched. She always seemed harassed by her large family of children, and with so many people swarming in and out, the house was less tidy than comfortable. She washed and ironed her paper money so it would be crisp. She may have starched it.

Home Annie Proulx Bird Cloud. So ended the first and only full year I was to spend at Bird Cloud. I returned in March and for several more years came in early spring and stayed until the road-choking snow drove me out, but I had to face the fact that no matter how much I loved the place it was not, and never could be, the final home of which I had dreamed. In April 2010 I returned to Bird Cloud to catch up on the lives of the avian population of the cliff. If you watch birds you soon realize how dangerous are their lives.

Annie Proulx’s memoir is about the building of her dream home on 640 acres (one . But Bird Cloud is only tangentially about the making of a house.
