Keith Mark's “Tales From Wheat Creek,” is an old fashioned series of stories involving faith, family, friends and hunting. These tales are inspired by the author’s lifetime of experiences including his upbringing, faith, family, as well as his experiences in the outdoors, the world of entertainment, business, and much more.  Sometimes it may be hard for the reader to separate fact from fiction, but that is part of what makes these stories so special.
