Idaho's Historic Trails from Lewis & Clark to Railroads

Price: $13.95

Retrace the paths of the natives, explorers, soldiers and settlers who wrote the early chapters in the story of Idaho settlement. Thousands of travelers will pass through the state of Idaho during the next three years, following the route blazed 200 years ago by the Lewis and Clark Expedition. It was in Idaho that the members of The Corps of Discovery endured the hardships of the Lolo Trail and were rescued from starvation by friendly Nez Perce Indians. During the nineteenth century, explorers, miners, military expeditions, and railroads established many historically significant routes across Idaho. Veteran writer Martin Potucek tells the story of many of these trails and provides directions and tips for modern travelers.
