Staff Reviews


“I can already say with confidence Deep Creek will be the best book I read in 2019. Pam Houston’s lyrical and intensely personal account of her life on a ranch in the high country of Colorado is at once a love letter to the land, and a thought provoking commentary on the complexity of the human condition. I didn’t want this book to end. A special read that will be enjoyed by anyone, anywhere with a heart.”

— Len Vlahos, Co-Owner

“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.”
— Stan Hynds, Northshire Saratoga, Saratoga Springs, NY

Deep Creek is Pam Houston at her most honest and lyrical. She looks at how her life has been shaped by her beautiful ranch in Colorado’s high country, and she lovingly evokes that land with its horses, dogs, and, most importantly, the people who populate and enrich her life.”
