This primitive beginning was necessary, they knew, for those who would come before and blaze the trail; but they knew and accepted that they must do much more for their next generation, and that they must sacrifice their own lives entire - in establishing the foundation to make this happen.Read more ›
the dry farm areas east of Idaho Falls & Rigby, ID where I was born and raised.I was dismayed to learn that this book is not available at the public library here in Boise and that it is out of print. This book and "Toilers of the Hills" are richly rewarding to any avid reader. Fisher seems to be remembered now only for "Mountain Man" from which the movie, "Jeremiah Johnson" was adapted. He wrote The Mothers", about the Donner Party tragedy & "Tale of Valor" that fills a proper niche now that the Lewis & Clark bicentennial is upon us.
