    Product Description


    Motels at the Top of the World
    by Jerry Foster

    Staying a night or two at a retired fire lookout on one of Idaho’s grand peaks gives new meaning to the phrase, “getting away from it all.” Between the views and the solitude, it is a wonder this activity isn’t more popular. Grab your gear and go…and prepare yourself for an entirely new perspective.

    Grandma Emery’s Cookbook
    by Helen McMullin

    This is the story of an Idaho family, told with the help of an everyday item that turned into a treasure. Join the Emerys, of turn-of-the-century Oakley, on their journey from the east to the marvelous west (and get a few classic housekeeping tips while you’re at it)!

    by Nancy C. Butler

    Orofino is tucked away in the winding canyon of the beautiful Clearwater River in north central Idaho. The river and surrounding natural environment are a big part of the lifestyle of Orofino’s people. Forested canyon walls surround the community, which was built following the contours carved by the Clearwater River and Orofino Creek.
