5.0 étoiles sur 5 Learning from real life 18 mars 2007
Par TROLLE
Format:Broché
This book is about how to adapt oneself to new circumstances in life, without any help but humility and respect for the natural order. The character goes through a long way of hard work, challenges and callings into question to get initiated and reach his goal. In the background, Indian Creek Chronicles brings us with one of the possible reasons why people succeed or fail in their destiny : something related to their strength of character to stay involved in what is deeply fixed in their own mind. The book lets us think it's better to keep straight on one's own track and persevere rather than to steer oneself in a more comfortable but wrong direction. Finally, staying marveled at simple things of life, and being careful with the lure of the « high life » seems to be a right behaviour for happiness. I highly recommand Indian Creek Chronicles.

Mis à part quelques longueurs, un excellent divertissement qui se lit vite, qui fait rêver, un peu naïvement d'ailleurs. Qui n'a besoin de rêve ?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Page-turner about a young man's winter wilderness adventures 29 juin 2003
Par Ronald Scheer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
A chance conversation with a college friend sends the author venturing into the Bitterroot Wilderness along the Montana-Idaho border, where he spends a winter tending to salmon eggs for the Idaho Dept. of Fish and Game. This responsibility takes only minutes out of each day; the rest of the time is his own, and what this gregarious, impulsive, party-loving 20-year-old does with seven months of isolation in the wilderness is the central theme of this book.
Fromm makes clear from the outset that he's almost utterly unprepared for this experience, with little guiding him but a fascination for the rugged, self-sufficient mountain men whose adventures he has read about. Packing a couple books on outdoor survival, he plans to figure it out as he goes, and given a need to keep himself busy and his mind off the isolation, he acquires a range of on-the-job skills, from operating a chain saw, to camp cooking, skinning animals, and curing meat. He also hunts for game, subsisting on grouse and squirrel until he amazingly (and illegally) bags a moose with a muzzle-loader.
In fact, Fromm is not entirely alone -- he has a dog as a constant companion -- and there is a trickle of visitors throughout the winter. Besides the occasional visit by the wardens, who bring mail and packages, there are hunters and their guides who trek in on snowmobiles (snowmachines, as he learns to call them). Welcoming the company -- and curious -- he goes along on hunts, witnessing the shooting of a mountain lion.
There are some disappointments. His father and brother travel from Milwaukee and attempt to ski in but are turned back by cold and bad trail conditions. A planned "vacation" with friends in Missoula has to be cancelled when snowslides make access difficult. He consoles himself after killing and skinning an injured bobcat that he wouldn't have had this experience if he hadn't been on his own.
The book invites comparison with C. L. Rawlins' "Broken Country," in which the author recalls a college-boy summer as a cook and horse wrangler for a sheepherder in the mountains of western Wyoming. A reader will also be reminded at times of Edward Abbey's youthful "Desert Solitaire."All exhibit a willingness to abandon themselves to adventure without considerable forethought, but there's a relative lack of reflectiveness on the part of Fromm, who is able to report straightforwardly what he observes but tends to avoid making connections to the ideas of other people or to think deeply or critcally about his experience. This makes the book more of a page-turner; you rarely put it down to let something he's written soak in.
In the end, you forgive him his youth, give him credit for surviving (there are some close calls that may have turned his story into another "Into the Wild"), and appreciate the clean, clear style and the ability to create and maintain suspense (for example when his father and brother fail to arrive). I'm happy to recommend it to anyone with an interest in Western nonfiction, wilderness adventures and the psychological aspects of isolation.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of my personal favorites of this genre 22 janvier 2007
Par Shawn T. Prince - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I truly loved this book on many levels, from the hunting and fishing experiences the author shared to his personal reflections on several moral issues, which I felt were very poignant and truthful.

The majority of this book covers the author's seven-month stay in a canvas tent, deep in the Idaho wilderness during the months of October through May. His job was to watch over and protect millions of salmon eggs that had been cached in the gravel of a nearby river.

His love of mountain man books and the thrill of experiencing nature in all of its variety are ideals that initially lead him to volunteer for the long winter assignment. Later, his enthusiasm changes to loneliness and regret as he faces his separation from his friends and family.

On the surface, his tale recounts his meetings with hunters, guides, outfitters, forest rangers, wardens, and outdoors enthusiasts as they pass by his lonely tent in his remote meadow. He speaks of the extreme winter weather he faced, the wildlife he encountered, and the steps he took to survive in an isolated and severe environment.

The real beauty of this book, however, comes when the author shares how painful moments of loneliness affected him and ultimately how these experiences changed him into a person who became very secure with his own creative abilities and very comfortable with his own company.

He records some very personal reflections regarding what it meant to him to shoot various animals for meat during his long winter stay. As he accompanies various guides and hunters on their hunting trips, he recounts how he felt when others did not view their kills as the resources he believed they were.

The author writes of loss, of waste, of fully utilizing one's resources, of missing one's family and friends and how dear trusted loved ones are to a soul, and of the gloriousness of wildlife and wilderness. He revels in the beauties that surround him and comes to truly appreciate his experience alone for several months in the mountains.

My words cannot do justice to the lessons I watched him learn and to the maturing and self-discovery he experienced. I also cannot do honor to the beautiful way he describes nature, its wildlife, and the incredible beauty to be found in truly wild places. Thus, you should experience this book for yourself if you love these types of things.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Wilderness adventure in a first-person perspective 4 février 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I found this book a nice easy read in general. My main reason for picking it up is because this true story takes place within minutes of my residence. It was interesting to read about another person's adventures in the same wilderness that I hike, hunt, camp, and explore in on a regular basis. It is honest in that the author is not constantly glorifying himself or trying to prove that he was an expert mountain man. He also shows the reader the harsh, unforgiving environment that this area can become during the long winter months, and the dangers of not being prepared. Since it is a true story told in first-person perspective, it is more of a journal or autobiography than escape literature.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 My kind of book! 28 juillet 2006
Par Rodney C. Sullivan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I didn't want to put this book down. Perhaps it just appeals to me but I really enjoyed the story. I found it well written. Definately not boring. If you like books like: Swiss Family Robinson, A Place in the Woods (Helen Hoover), April Morning, Robinson Crusoe, I believe you will like this one too. The story takes me to a winter wilderness camp and I feel I can identify with the story teller. Makes me wish I had been there myselfto see all he saw and feel all he felt. Makes me wish for my own youth back so I could be so implusive and adventurous.
