he conflict between native tribes and Euro-Americans in Washington Territory, in the mid-nineteenth century, isn’t as famous as some of the later Indian wars farther inland. But at least 370 victims died violently between September 1855 and November 1858. The casualties included soldiers, chiefs, warriors, volunteers, civilians, non-combatants, women and children. The fighting raged from Puget Sound and the outskirts of Seattle to the Spokane region far to the east and adjacent area that became northern Idaho. The war began and ended in the Yakima Valley, home of the Yakama tribe and their legendary chief, Kamiakin – the bestknown native leader in the Pacific Northwest during that period. A band led by Kamiakin fired the opening shots of the war and the chief was a major influence in the events that followed. Using words, maps and illustrations, author Jo N. Miles paints a vivid picture of a tumultuous time in the history of America’s Pacific Northwest.

Polly Bemis: The Life and Times of a Chinese American Pioneer by Priscilla Wegars Polly Bemis, the mistakenly named “Lalu Nathoy” of books and film, was forcibly brought to the United States, and to Idaho Territory, in 1872 when she was just eighteen. In 1894 she married a Euroamerican man, Charlie Bemis, and they moved to a mining claim on the remote Salmon River; Charlie died in 1922 and Polly died in 1933. Since her death, Polly Bemis’s life has been greatly romanticized. Supposedly, she was a prostitute, “Hong King” was her Chinese owner, and Charlie Bemis “won her in a poker game.” Not one of these statements is true. Polly’s life was genuinely fascinating, and it is time to both celebrate the known facts about her and allow the stereotypical, undocumented legends to die out. ISBN# 978-087004-6407 Price TBD

The Big Run by Ray Fadich In 1958, when Captain Nick “Foreigner” Barhanovich hired greenhorn Ray Fadich to work as a skiffman on Barhanovich’s purse seiner The Emancipator, Fadich had little clue what that fishing season would hold for him. As the newest member of the crew, Fadich had to deal with a steep learning curve, days of backbreaking labor, and the practical jokes and initiation into the brotherhood of the commercial fisherman—all while The Emancipator followed the salmon through Puget Sound, chasing the elusive catch that would enter the boat and its crew into the record books. In this memoir of the 1958 sockeye fishing season aboard The Emancipator, Fadich describes in detail the disappointment and joy he and his crewmates experienced as they vied with weather, other boats, and time as they tried to strike it rich during The Big Run.

Ranching Women of Colorado by Linda Wommack The American West has always been known for strong women, and the state of Colorado is no exception. From the earliest days of settlement, Colorado women had a love for the land and built their homesteads and ranches. The Homestead Act of 1862 brought thousands west for free land, new beginnings, and a new way of life. For many, it was the dawn of a new dream, and no more so than for the female homesteader. At a time when most women’s futures were tied to a husband’s prosperity, it was a bold, courageous step for women to step out of the conventional norm.

The Frontiersmen Who Couldn’t Shoot Straight: The Army vs. The Pioneers 1815-1845 by Gregory Michno "The years between 1815 and 1845 were marked by a comparative dearth of Indian “Wars.” It was a time when the Army became professional, and when it learned that the frontiersmen, not the Indians, were the greater enemy. It was a time when the Government expanded its role as regulator and welfare provider; when some frontier people became terrorists; when our gun culture blossomed; when our racism, bigotry, and xenophobia exploded; when our anti-intellectualism soared; when the populist “common man” seized the political scene; and when our conception of American exceptionalism took root, based on the creation of the heroic frontiersman icon. In this intriguing interpretation of western history, Michno deconstructs several American foundation myths while linking the past with the present in many thought-provoking vignettes. He reminds us that times do not shape people— people shape the times." – Gregory J.W. Urwin, Temple University

Working the Wilderness: Early Leaders for Wild Lands by John McCarthy Working the Wilderness tells true stories about four men and one woman who established how to work in and be in the wilderness. They were guides for protection of wilderness and for the protectors who followed them. Their lives were immersed in service — to wild land and the American people. They worked for the U.S. Forest Service, centered in the vast Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness of Idaho and Montana. Three were active before and after the Wilderness Act of 1964. The younger two came in at the beginning of the modern wilderness era. They all adapted skills of the pioneers to the new land designation. Their stories celebrate heroes for the enduring resource of wilderness and point to the future to keep their legacies thriving.

Murder in the Mile High City: The First Hundred Years by Linda Wommack with Linda Jones Denver, Colorado has become one the nation’s major metropolitan areas. But since its founding in 1858, Denver has seen its share of violence and mayhem. In Murder in the Mile High City: The First 100 Years, author Linda Wommack, aided by fellow writer and researcher Linda Jones, describes forty-two riveting murder cases that made headlines during Denver’s first century. The cases range from the married socialite who was the cause of the death of one of two of her lovers - neither of whom was her husband - to a man who planted a bomb on the United Airlines plane carrying his mother, giving him the dubious distinction of being responsible for the first airborne terror attack. Wommack also examines the role played by Denver newspapers in the prosecution of the accused.

Bicycling the Oregon Trail by Don Weinell “Crossing the country by bicycle is probably about as close as you can come today to experiencing what it was like for the pioneers when they forged the Oregon Trail back in the 1800’s. I saw some of the wagon ruts in eastern Oregon when I did my TransAm ride back in 1998, and it was a haunting, tantalizing experience – I would certainly have liked to learn more. Don Weinell has written a fantastic guide which will enrich anybody’s experience of the original “Trans America” trail.

Three diarists vividly describe the dreaded crossing of the Forty-Mile Desert and the Sierras. Especially impressive are its nearly 175 first-hand trail illustrations paired with relevant diary entries, comments and matching present-day photos. Most of the historic sites, fine museums and displays along the trail are also described.

Ute Legends by Celinda Reynolds Kaelin Elders of the Ute tribe say that Great Spirit created the Four-Leggeds (animals) first so that they could show Two Leggeds (humans) how to “walk” on this earth. In Ute Legends, Kaelin has delved deeply into the ancient animal stories of the Ute Nation to find all they can teach us. Native oral tradition is too often dismissed as irrelevant, even though at least one story can be traced back over 1500 years. As Ute Legends shows us, these compelling stories were essential to the foundation of the Ute culture and in establishing the tribe's sense of their place in the natural world. In Ute Legends, author Celinda Kaelin provides the reader with retellings of these legends along with a detailed analysis of their origins and meaning.

From 1784 until 1834, virtually all of the positions of power in California - military, political and ecclesiastical - were held by Basques. In those fifty years, these men put a unique stamp on how the territory was defined, how it was run, and its role in the formation and growth of what would become the most powerful country in the world.

Defending Idaho’s Natural Heritage by Ken Robison

Jerry D. Mathes II takes readers into the heart of wildfires from the forests of Idaho to the deserts of the Mexican border -- and directly into the lives of the men and women who face the terror, beauty, and hardship of life on the fire line. With a poet’s lyricism, Mathes tells of the life and death of friends, of negotiating the bureaucracy of the federal fire service, and of the rivalry of competing agencies. He wistfully describes the weighty abscence of his daughters as they grow up and the desperate feeling of failure even as he appears to be succeeding.

Since early in the 20th century concerned citizen groups, conservationists and outdoorsmen have been waging an on-going battle to preserve Idaho’s wild lands against encroaching private and governmental concerns. In Defending Idaho’s Natural Heritage retired journalist and Idaho legislator Ken Robison collects the history of these efforts.

The San Juan Islands: Into the 21st Century by JoAnn Roe

try wilderness is renowned for its stark beauty. Remarkably, some of the state’s most beautiful sites are easily accessible for the road traveler who is willing to drive the backcountry logging and forest service roads that few have cataloged. Brother and sister team Lynna and Leland have spent years doing just that. With more than 114 photographs, 33 color maps, 31 detailed expeditions complete with GPS coordinates, Backcountry Roads: Idaho is an indispensable companion to the road explorer.

The 172 San Juan Islands of Washington State are the uppermost remains of a mountain range that once separated the fifty miles between Vancouver Island and mainland Washington. From a fifty-year resident’s viewpoint, The San Juan Islands: Into the 21st Century examines this remote yet oft-visited northwest corner of Washington State. The author tells of farming lavender rather than wheat and alpacas rather than cattle; of interisland boats and barges that still fight stormy seas and riptide; of the development of reliable medical care only during the 1950s; of the emphasis today on sensible land management, the orca whales that are native to the area, and the former and current identity of these island people. JoAnn Roe explores both the history and the present day life of this unique and alluring region.

Boots and Saddles: Military Leaders of the American West

Each mission carries with it tales of unremitting labor, sacrifice, love, intrigue, passion, violence, and death. This volume treats the familiar stories of the missionaries as well as the previously untold stories of the Native Americans with equal candor. With more than sixty photographs, and based on exhaustive research and historical documents, Lands Never Trodden is an entertaining, educational and readable presentation of the twenty-one California missions.

The Indian Wars of the American West were fought over a period of more than three decades across a landscape that spanned more than half of the land mass of the lower continental United States. The leaders of the small army that was sent to carry out the government’s policies faced formidable adversaries. Tenacious and aggressive, Native warriors formed what some have called “the best light cavalry in the world.” The officers who confronted them faced daunting tasks. Boots and Saddles: Military Leaders of the American West provides an encompassing look at the leaders and the battles they fought.

Although a new life seemed to await them just over the horizon, none of them suspected how formidable that horizon really was.

Next, in 1933, it housed nearly two hundred tent-dwelling Civilian Conservation Corps recruits. In 1935 the site became Federal Prison Camp No. 11, a road-building facility for convicts mostly from the Leavenworth, Kansas, penitentiary.

Polly Bemis: The Life and Times of a Chinese American Pioneer by Priscilla Wegars Polly Bemis, the mistakenly named “Lalu Nathoy” of books and film, was forcibly brought to the United States, and to Idaho Territory, in 1872 when she was just eighteen. In 1894 she married a Euroamerican man, Charlie Bemis, and they moved to a mining claim on the remote Salmon River; Charlie died in 1922 and Polly died in 1933. Since her death, Polly Bemis’s life has been greatly romanticized. Supposedly, she was a prostitute, “Hong King” was her Chinese owner, and Charlie Bemis “won her in a poker game.” Not one of these statements is true. Polly’s life was genuinely fascinating, and it is time to both celebrate the known facts about her and allow the stereotypical, undocumented legends to die out. ISBN# 978-087004-6407 Price TBD

he conflict between native tribes and Euro-Americans in Washington Territory, in the mid-nineteenth century, isn’t as famous as some of the later Indian wars farther inland. But at least 370 victims died violently between September 1855 and November 1858. The casualties included soldiers, chiefs, warriors, volunteers, civilians, non-combatants, women and children. The fighting raged from Puget Sound and the outskirts of Seattle to the Spokane region far to the east and adjacent area that became northern Idaho. The war began and ended in the Yakima Valley, home of the Yakama tribe and their legendary chief, Kamiakin – the bestknown native leader in the Pacific Northwest during that period. A band led by Kamiakin fired the opening shots of the war and the chief was a major influence in the events that followed. Using words, maps and illustrations, author Jo N. Miles paints a vivid picture of a tumultuous time in the history of America’s Pacific Northwest.
