A top-ranked horse trainer's gorgeous, life-affirming memoir, Half Broke, offers profound insight into the fascinating ways both horses and humans seek relationships to survive.
On her 120-acre homestead high in the Colorado Rockies, beloved writer Pam Houston learns what it means to care for a piece of land and the creatures on it. 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."
