summary

Idaho�s Place is an anthology of the most current and original writing on Gem State history. From the state�s indigenous roots and early environmental battles to recent political and social events, these essays provide much-needed context for understanding Idaho�s important role in the development of the American West.

Through a creative approach that combines explorations of concepts such as politics, gender, and race with the oral histories of Idaho residents - the very people who lived and made state history - this unique collection sheds new light on the state�s surprisingly contentious past. Readers, whether they are longtime residents or newcomers, tourists or seasonal dwellers, policy makers or historians, will be treated to a rich narrative in which the many threads of Idaho�s history entwine to produce a complete tapestry of this beautiful and complex Western state.
