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.
