Overview

'A truly gifted writer' Sebastian Barry 'Pure gold' Emma Donoghue 'Remarkable' Chigozie Obioma WHAT MAKES A HOME A HOME? TELL ME A STORY I CAN DREAM ON . . . Ba dies in the night, Ma is already gone. Lucy and Sam, twelve and eleven, are suddenly alone and on the run. With their father's body on their backs, they roam an unforgiving landscape dotted with giant buffalo bones and tiger paw prints, searching for a place to give him a proper burial. Once Lucy and Sam have made it out of the wild, they are changed forever. Sam chooses to live in their father's shadow, while Luck breaks free. Taking their own paths in the American West, in the twilight of the Gold Rush, encountering a cast of menacing characters: a fur trapper in exile, a charismatic brothel owner and a debutante from the upper echelons of society, each either sidesteps or falls victim to the new gods of greed, wealth and opportunism. Eventually, the siblings pull apart and come together for a final reckoning. HOW MUCH OF THESE HILLS IS GOLD is a sweeping adventure tale, an unforgettable sibling story and a remarkable novel about family, bound and divided by its memories. 'Dazzling' Daisy Johnson 'A wonder' Garth Greenwell 'Ferocious, dark and gleaming' Lauren Groff

Reviews

How Much of These Hills is a miracle, as timely as it is timeless, propulsive but also wonderfully meditative, a ferocious, tender epic about vulnerable immigrant family trying to survive the American Gold Rush. I read it in one night and know I'll revisit it soon: I envy you your first read of this book -- R.O. Kwon, author of The Incendiaries This exhilarating novel unweaves the myths of the American West and offers in their place a gorgeous, broken, soulful, feral song of family and yearning, origin and earth. C Pam Zhang is a brilliant, fearless writer. This book is a wonder -- Garth Greenwell, author of What Belongs to You C Pam Zhang's debut is ferocious, dark and gleaming, a book erupting out of the interstices between myth and dream, between longing and belonging. How Much of These Hills Is Gold tells us that stories--like people, like the rough and stunning landscape of California itself--are constantly in the process of being made, broken, and finally remade into something tender and new -- Lauren Groff, New York Times-bestselling author of Fates and Furies
