This is a real Western, so honest and beautiful it almost hurts to not be a cowboy. Sweetgrass tells the nonfiction of the last modern-day cowboys in Montana who lead their sheep over 150 miles to pasture across the Absaroka-Beartooth mountains. It is all at once intimate and vast, an “unsentimental elegy to the American West.”
