Idaho's Place

A New History of the Gem State

Edited by Adam M. Sowards
Idaho’s Place is an anthology of the most current and original writing on Gem State history. From the state’s indigenous roots and early environmental battles to recent political and social events, these essays provide much-needed context for understanding Idaho’s important role in the development of the American West.

Through a creative approach that combines explorations of concepts such as politics, gender, and race with the oral histories of Idaho residents - the very people who lived and made state history - this unique collection sheds new light on the state’s surprisingly contentious past. Readers, whether they are longtime residents or newcomers, tourists or seasonal dwellers, policy makers or historians, will be treated to a rich narrative in which the many threads of Idaho’s history entwine to produce a complete tapestry of this beautiful and complex Western state.

Adam M. Sowards is associate professor of history and director of the Program in Pacific Northwest Studies at the University of Idaho. He is also the author of The Environmental Justice: William O. Douglas and American Conservation.

"The State of Idaho is truly blessed to draw the attention of this talented, competent group widely recognized for past scholarly contributions. The range and depth of the research displayed in the essays are outstanding."—David H. Stratton, author of Terra Northwest: Interpreting People and Place
