    Dusty Daisies, Part One
    by Celeste Killeen

    This is the true story of an international parental-kidnapping case that took place in Boise during the early 1980s, a time when parental kidnapping was viewed more as a domestic dispute than a crime. Celeste Chapman files her case with the Ada County Prosecutor’s Office and teams up with investigator Vaughn Killeen to find her five-year-old daughter, Athena. The search takes her on a thirteen-month rollercoaster ride through a tangled maze of extortion, deceit, and powerlessness.

    Bellevue—Spotlight City
    by Karen Bossick

    This central Idaho town, population 2,450, is a mere fifteen miles from glitzy Sun Valley, but don’t let that fool you. Bellevue doesn’t even pretend to share in the resort town’s glamour. Its residents are blue collar—and proud of it. “Even the tower in the old town hall is slightly cocked, as if it has a chip on its shoulder,” said City Administrator Tom Blanchard. From the rough-and-tumble yet sophisticated beginnings, to the bitter rivalry with nearby Hailey, Bellevue’s story is, in a word, juicy.

    Waiting for Wolves
    by Kurt Caswell

    “Muchos lobos… Muchos lobos aqui,” says Walter Luya. Indeed, “many wolves” have become a growing threat to the bands of sheep Walter and his Peruvian counterparts herd for the Soulen Livestock Company near McCall. They watch, and they wait. They try to understand why the wolves kill, and why they kill so many—seventy-one in one night. Despite the losses to her herd—and her bottom line—and at the risk of alienating herself from other ranchers, Margaret Soulen believes wolves and sheep can live side by side. It’s a story about human beings, she says, not only about wolves. It’s about communication and compromise.
