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.

Pete Fromm is the author most recently of As Cool as I Am and How All This Started. He lives with his family in Great Falls, Montana.

Editorial Reviews

"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
