Winter Creek is John Daniel's disarmingly honest story of his restless, rootless, dsaffected youth, looking for meaning in drugs and an active outdoor life in the West. From time spent fishing, climbing, and making a living logging - as well as through friendships with writers William Stafford and Wallace Stegner - Daniel developed a personal and artistic ethos based on a long view of evolution and the glory of living with one's senses and an open mind.
Daniel also speaks for the need to value small farmers and ranchers - "authentic human communities" that are as threatened as the plants and animals environmentalists strive to protect.
