Editorial Reviews

Review

"A colorful, fast-paced narrative, accented throughout by interpretive insights that give the book substance and meaning, but never at the price of critical insight or objectivity. A tremendous amount of thought and re-search have gone into this volume. It will find a wide and growing following among everyone interested in the state of ldaho."—Alfred Runte, author of Yosemite: The Embattled Wilderness

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is clearly an Idaho History textbook, it is a little dated, but more than servicable. It covers the basics of native American cultural geography, and gives a pretty solid history of the devolpment of the territory and the early years of statehood. Like many books of this type it is strongest on dealing with the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and presents a very sound outline for the events of that period.

While it is pretty diligent in avoiding controversy and not exactly the most thrilling read it is a very useful work. Like most states, Idaho finds itself with pretty much one general survey history book, and with Schwantes, it has done better than most.

It has a decent bibliography, though there has been considerable historical work done in the past twenty years which of course it has missed. A new edition with an improved bibliography would be very welcome.
