At 31, after a tour promoting Cowboys Are My Weakness, Pam Houston spent her royalties on a 120-acre ranch in Colorado. DEEP CREEK: FINDING HOPE IN THE HIGH COUNTRY tells the remarkable story of “that girl who dared herself to buy a ranch, dared herself to dig in and care for it, to work hard enough to pay for it, to figure out what other people mean when they use the world ‘home.”’
Pam Houston authored Contents May Have Shifted, Cowboys Are My Weakness, Waltzing the Cat, the novel, Sight Hound, A Little More About Me. Her stories have been selected for volumes of Best American Short Stories, The O. Henry Awards, The 2013 Pushcart Prize, and Best American Short Stories of the Century. Houston co-founded the literary nonprofit Writing By Writers and teaches at UC Davis and the Institute of American Indian Art’s MFA program.
