Finding Hope in the High Country, a Memoir Book Talk & Signing
Critically-acclaimed author Pam Houston will discuss and sign Deep Creek: Finding Hope in the High Country ($25.95 W. W. Norton & Company). On her 120-acre homestead high in the Colorado Rockies, Houston learns what it means to care for a piece of land and the creatures on it.
Through her travels from the Gulf of Mexico to Alaska, she explores what ties her to the earth, the ranch most of all. Alongside her devoted Irish wolfhounds and a spirited troupe of horses, donkeys, and Icelandic sheep, the ranch becomes Houston's sanctuary, a place where she discovers how the natural world has mothered and healed her after a childhood of horrific parental abuse and neglect. In essays as lucid and invigorating as mountain air, Deep Creek delivers Houston's most profound meditations yet on how "to live simultaneously inside the wonder and the grief--to love the damaged world and do what I can to help it thrive."
