About the Author

Pam Houston is the prize-winning author of Contents May Have Shifted, among other books. She is professor of English at the University of California-Davis and lives on a ranch at 9,000 feet in Colorado near the headwaters of the Rio Grande.


There is so much beauty, wisdom, and truth in this book, I felt the pages almost humming in my hands. I was riveted and enlightened, inspired and consoled. This is a book for all of us, right now.--Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild
This book is endlessly wise, funny, and full of heart. To say that its clear-eyed, doom-laden--yet loving--message is important and timely would be an understatement. It is unapologetically sincere, utterly moving.--Tommy Orange, author of There There
Houston's vision find a solid place among the chronicles of quiet appreciation of the American wilderness, without the misanthropy that often accompanies the genre; her passion for the land and its inhabitants is irresistibly contagious.
Houston has a great range of vision, and she's fun to read. She gets the land right...In this perfectly American memoir, a restless heart finds its place.--Craig Childs, author of Atlas of a Lost World
Full of wisdom, wit, and loving attention, Pam Houston's survey of her life and land should be required reading for anyone who loves this planet we call home.--Camille T. Dungy, author of Guidebook to Relative Strangers
A profound and inspiring love letter to one piece of Earth--and to the rest of it, as well.
Always impressive, Houston is in striking form here. Her talent remains remarkable and her words extraordinarily affecting and effective.
Highly recommended as a memoir that combines nature, writing, and personal reflection.
Deep Creek is a love letter to earth, animals, and the best of humanity. Pam Houston has taken our heartache and woven it back into hope. Her stories of love, loss, and a life lived in relationship to land give us good reasons not to give up on ourselves or each other. This is the book we need right now to remind us how to endure--passionately. An unstoppable heart song.--Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Misfit's Manifesto
