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.
