Deep Creek: Finding Hope in the High Country

Deep Creek: Finding Hope in the High Country by Pam Houston is a memoir of life at her ranch high in the mountains of CO. She bought the property in 1993 and over the years transformed it into a working ranch that became her first real home. She had a dysfunctional childhood with no roots of any kind, so it was a revelation to her that a physical place could exert such a hold. Her descriptions of nature are wonderful and she doesn’t shy away from describing sadness or challenges. (Non-Fiction)
