About the Author
Evan E. Filby retired from a position where he published over 250 articles, reports, book chapters, and other nonfiction documents. For over a decade since, he has pursued a "second career" in writing, producing both nonfiction and fiction. Besides a novel – still seeking a publisher – he has written several short stories. His studies of Western history, particularly Idaho history, have led to quite a few nonfiction articles. Topics have included "Albert Sidney Johnston and the Mormon War," "the Battle of White Bird Canyon," "Loyal P. Brown: Idaho County Pioneer," and a series on the founding of the various Idaho institutions of higher learning. "Before the Spud: Indians, Buckaroos and Sheepherders in Pioneer Idaho" is the second book he has published about Idaho history. The first published work, "Boise River Gold Country," recounts the history of the gold towns the sprang up after the fall of 1862 in the mountainous Boise River watershed, northeast of the city of Boise. Evan also has a work of historical fiction in the planning stage. Filby produces a blog based on his research on Idaho history: the "South Fork Companion" at http://sfcompanion.blogspot.com/. The blog features an "On This Day" item devoted to daily milestones specifically connected to Idaho history. Evan collected images for, and wrote Boise River Gold Country to help celebrate the 150th anniversary of the discovery of gold in the Boise Basin. Several "spin-off" writing projects are also being considered.
