    Substantiating Legends

    by John Davidson

    To a six-year-old boy gazing at washed-out photographs they looked like giant bugs dangling from filaments connected to a silky cocoon. Who were they? They were smoke jumpers, part of an elite group sent out to extinguish fires before they blew up into destructive conflagrations. John Davidson lays out the history of these men who have become McCall legends.

    by Dave Clark

    Arco is a place of transition—where the desert plain meets the mountains, blue streams disappear into black lava, where the urban gives way to the wilds of Idaho. Today, as it has been for over a hundred years, if you need to get around Idaho, sooner or later you will pass through Arco.

    Fair Game of Fair Use?
    by Sands Hall & Arlen Oneida

    When it was discovered that lengthy sections of Mary Hallock Foote’s writing had been used in Wallace Stegner’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel Angle of Repose, a controversy erupted over whether that use was legitimate or was outright plagiarism. Sands Hall and Arlen Oneida explain the controversy, as well as the history of Mary Hallock Foote, one of Idaho’s most overlooked treasures.
