Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Chances are most libraries have very little on Idaho. Schwantes (Univ. of Idaho) attempts to define Idaho not in touristic or purely historical terms but by its geographical terrain. Few states have such a rocky creation (geographically and politically speaking), and Schwantes does an outstanding job in bringing this little-known state to life. He discusses the early years of Idaho, when it was much larger than its present boundaries. He tells of how trappers, miners, visionaries, railroad magnates, environmentalists, and others left their indelible mark on the state. All this is conveyed by someone with an obvious love for his subject and a deep concern for its future. Long after the tourist books on Idaho are out of date, this work will remain a valuable look at a remarkable part of the country. Highly recommended for all libraries.Joseph L. Carlson, Vandenberg AFB Lib., Cal.

A collection of the author's color photos supported by a thorough knowledge of Idaho history and his extensive wandering there. As might be expected of the writer of Railroad Signatures Across the Pacific Northwest Schwantes (history, U. of Idaho) covers transportation extensively. The artistry of his pictures is a delightful surprise. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
