Pamela Royes With David Laskin: Temperance Creek says
In Pam Royes’ Temperance Creek: a Memoir (Counterpoint), a North Dakotan from a “respectable Presbyterian background” meets a Vietnam Vet and leaves with him on a trek through the remote Hell’s Canyon wilderness of Eastern Oregon. Her reinvention of herself as a “wild woman” (and now a hay and cattle rancher) is of course at the heart of this story.
Pam Royes appears onstage this evening with Seattle writer, David Laskin, author of The Family and of The Children’s Blizzard.

"Pamela Royes' dramatic history has fascinated me for years. Her life seems a miracle in so many ways, but it is her brave heart, her endurance, her belief in the land, and her capacity for love that has brought her to this place of lyrical contemplation. Like Cheryl Strayed's Wild, Temperance Creek is part adventure story, part cautionary tale, and, finally, a meditation on marriage--a fearless reckoning with the decisions that have shaped one woman's life."--Kim Barnes
