Staff Reviews


It's quite a feat to make a reader cringe in sympathy and laugh uproariously in the same chapter, which is just what Pam Houston does in her new memoir, Deep Creek: Finding Hope in the High Country. Best known for her 90's break-out short-story collection, Cowboys Are My Weakness, Houston tells her own story this time--of a rotten childhood, ill-fated romances, publishing rises and falls--and of the Creede, Colorado, ranch and its creatures she could barely afford but that has saved her sanity and her soul time and again. This love affair turns out in the best of all possible ways. Recommended by Kelly

“I can’t decide if Mineral County, Colorado, is a piece of heaven or if it’s actually heaven. Either way, it is a wondrous Rocky Mountain paradise — a paradise beset by bitter cold, fires, and various degrees of hardship, but always exquisite beauty. Pam Houston has 120 acres of it, and readers get a glimpse of life and death on the ranch in this marvelous combination of memoir and nature writing. Both deeply personal and wide-reaching, Deep Creek is about the human capacity to feel grief and joy all at once for the ground beneath one’s feet and the planet as a whole.”
