Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Honest, lyrical, and full of a kind of ineffable wonder. Anyone who has ever loved a place truly will surely love this book” —Pam Houston, author of Cowboys Are My Weakness

“This is a lovely book about honesty, about clear-eyed seeing, and clear-eyed feeling. Each reader will come away from reading this book with a favorite scene that he or she will remember forever.” —Rick Bass

“Pete Fromm is an honest, objective, and impeccably focused observer of the natural world, and a superb writer to boot. His sentences have the impact of an ax cleaving chunks of frozen stovewood, and Indian Creek Chronicles is as satisfying as ten cords freshly split and stacked and ready for winter.” —Jerry Dennis, author of A Place on the Water

“A swift, absorbing tale. . .[Fromm] has made me shake out my heavy winter sleeping bags with renewed enthusiasm.” —Chicago Tribune

'I was at a local book store and asked one of the clerks if there was a book she consistently recommended to friends. She found this one for me and said whenever she lends it out she never gets it back and always has to buy another to replace it. Admittedly I was a little disappointed in her choice (nature books are not my chosen genre) but not wanting to hurt her feelings I bought the book. I finished it that night. Although I enjoy the mountains myself I have never been interested in the mountain man style of life. I'm still not interested to live it but I sure did enjoy reading about the author striving to live it while not having any experience with it and only a few books,journals, and a dog to guide him along the way. It depicts those type of life experiences we all wish we had when we were younger and in a little better shape. I have lent it to several friends (some nature people, some not) and have always received a hearty thumbs up upon its return--yes, I have not had to replace it yet. I make sure this one comes back! Enjoy

I used to be an avid outdoorsman. After reading this book and I felt like this man had done what I always wanted to do, but never had the oportunity. His description of the Montana wilderness and his honesty about his feelings and experiences really made this book stand out.
