Ghost Wall: A Novel

Ghost Wall is indeed a haunting book. Silvie “vacations” with her family to a primitive skills reenactment anthropology class. Silvie’s father’s passion is primitive life and she has been raised to fend for herself in the wild. She and her fellow students forage food and hunt rabbits, and Silvie is exposed through their friendship to the modern world, while the students have a close view of--and the opportunity to intervene in--Silvie’s family life.

Deep Creek: Finding Hope in the High Country

Fans of Pam Houston have to wait a few years between books, but the wait is always worth it. Deep Creek: Finding Hope in the High Country chronicles life on the  ranch she bought 25 years ago in Creede, Colorado, while also lovingly bearing witness to the large and small changes our planet and its inhabitants are undergoing. Houston weaves stories of her travels to remote and beautiful places with painful childhood memories and happenings on the ranch while addressing hope in the face of a changing climate. She leaves us with the idea that it is possible to simultaneously love and grieve, and that at its best grieving calls us to love that much more.
