Hemingway at Work: The Wood River Valley Years
by Caitlin Copple

While socially active, and occasionally available for publicity photographs, writer Ernest Hemingway usually kept his Idaho work private, even among friends in the Wood River Valley. Here’s a look at the fleeting, but sometimes telling, impressions the literary giant gave some confidants about his work-in-progress during stays in The Gem State (1939-1961).

Weiser—Spotlight
by Betty Derig

If you visit Weiser during National Oldtime Fiddlers’ Contest and Festival week, get ready for more than a big party, and great entertainment from more than 300 players. You might just fall under the magic spell of string music so sweet that it, “could fiddle all the bugs off a sweet-potato vine.”

Gliding With Orofino Gold: How Skiing Spurred Idaho’s First Gold Rush
by Ron Watters

Although the gold dust panned out of Orofino Creek in the early 1860s was derided by some, I. C. Smith paid no mind. Smith used so-called “long snowshoes,” the forerunners to modern cross-country and downhill skis, as the innovative vehicles that spurred the first gold rush in what would soon become the Idaho Territory.
