Publisher's Summary

Winner of the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Book Award, Indian Creek Chronicles is Pete Fromm's account of seven winter months spent alone in a tent in Idaho guarding salmon eggs and coming face to face with the blunt realities of life as a contemporary mountain man. A gripping story of adventure and a modern-day Walden, this contemporary classic established Fromm as one of the West's premier voices.

A good adventure

I liked the story very much. A nice mix of humor and adventure. The young spirit of a young man in the adventure of a lifetime that is at the beginning of his lifetime really.

Worthwhile but just average!

This is an enjoyable listen but nothing especially compelling or memorable as a whole. MMB

Good story that keeps a nice pace

I was interested in the story, and listened as I drove up the Clear Water river to Missoula. I was not too stoked on the ending but very relevant and telling.

Clearly and beautifully written

An engaging account of a winter spent in the backcountry. Fromm pulls in the reader with vivid details and soothing sentence structure. Very enjoyable.

A Book about putting yourself out there....

This book was an entertaining read. I wish I had the guts to “put myself out there.” I enjoyed the book very much.
