Idaho authors tell fascinating wilderness tales (from the Idaho Statesman)

EXCERPT: about “Merciless Eden”

Blog post by Janice Hildreth 

My Take: From the first to the last page, the Tims’ love of the Idaho wilderness draws you into the story of this small Idaho paradise.They write an historical account of Campbells Ferry, an isolated section of the Idaho wilderness almost exactly in the center of Idaho.

I enjoyed learning more new stories about Idaho’s rough and tumble history and most of them were new which made them all the more fascinating. As a counterpoint to the history, Doug Tims intersperses he and his wife’s present-day story in Campbell’s Ferry as they try to preserve the historical homestead.

If you’re a lover of history, or simply one who enjoys a good story, you will find  worth the read.
