Indian Creek Chronicles:. has been added to your Cart. I particularly appreciated the way Pete explained its relation to the wilderness. Normally I like a lot of dialogue in a novel but this one didn't have much since the majority of time it was just Fromm, alone. However, Fromm's internal dialogue was fantastic; the way he discovered himself by being completely isolated was inspiring and very well written.
Indian Creek Chronicles book. My only knocks on this book is the writing is of average quality and Fromm's ego, at times, can be annoying. Fortunately, neither detracts greatly from the story.
