Book review- The Indian Creek Chronicles by Pete Fromm
Have you ever dreamed of going into the wilderness and liing for 6 months by your wits and minimal equipment? How about over the winter in Montana where the temperature can droip to -40C. I know I have but a winter 7 months long would make me think twice.
This book was an impulse buy and I am so glad i got it. This true story follows Pete as he takes ona job as a fisheries offier in the wilderness looking after 2.5 million salmon eggs.
He has a romantic vision of being a mountain man but starts as a college drop out with little or no outdoors experience. Through his journey he meets interesting characters learns how to live in a tent in a blizzard and creates bonds that he never thought he would.
The writing is fantastic and drags up all sorts of emotions in the reader. Warning it may make you want to do this kind of thing yourself. The only problem is the suthorities would not let you these days!
I read it in 1 night.
Enjoy it and let me know what you thought.
