More About the Author

Joseph Dorris grew up in McCall, Idaho near the almost-ghost town of Warren, Idaho. He spent much of his youth exploring and gold panning in the Salmon River and Idaho wilderness, the setting of his three novels: Salmon River Kid, Sojourner of Warren's Camp and Sheepeater: To Cry for a Vision. He has had a lifetime interest in Native American culture and history, pioneer gold rushes, and mining history. He currently operates mining claims in Colorado for amazonite and smoky quartz specimens and has appeared on the program "Prospectors." He has based Salmon River Kid and Sojourner on the 1870s Chinese and whites in Warren's camp and Slate Creek and has weaved together historical vignettes from their lives and conflicts. He is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy. After retiring, he taught high school science and math and coached soccer. He enjoys painting and has illustrated all of his novels. Today, he lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with his wife, Susan, where they have raised three children.

Format: Paperback
Overall, this is an excellent novel with plenty of adventure and suspense, set in the rugged mountains of central Idaho in the 1870s. But, after reading this book, I realized that it is a work that should also be of interest to a variety of people.
1) Historians. The author obviously researched the historical setting and the geographical landscape to such a degree that one could use it as a guide to navigate a period of time when the West was being won in Idaho – it could be used as a resource for a history or geography professor. The map and numerous illustrations provided – all done by the author – help complete the picture and are a testament to Dorris’ artistic skills.
2) Hunters. The author has obviously spent a good deal of time in the out-of-doors. His description of the mountains, forests, undercover, and rivers of Idaho are so vivid that the reader can almost feel the tree branches brush against the shoulder while visualizing the treacherous rocky paths traversed by horse and pack mule. You can easily imagine that you are riding alongside the characters in the book as they hunt and fish for game in order to survive the heat of summer and the cold of winter in their hunt for gold.
3) Gemologists. The detailed descriptions of how to search for, assay, and refine minerals is an education in itself. What could have been a boring examination of panning, placer mining, and prospecting, was, instead, transformed into an educational experience that was skillfully woven into the heart of the story line – anyone interested in prospecting plus the adults and youth in our Scouting programs would especially enjoy this novel.
4) Sociologists. Chinese -- Indians – Americans. The book is also a study of the interaction, distrust, and cooperation between different cultures.
