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.
