Item description for Peaceful Valley : The Story of Kamiah's Early Years by Virginia Woods Meyer...
Although this book tells the story of one little Idaho town, Kamiah, located on the Nez Perce Indian reservation and visited by the Lewis and Clark expedition, in many ways it is the story of a multitude of small Pacific Northwestern towns whose origins date back to the turn of the last century--a time when individualism, initiative, and enterprise abounded. Accounts of events as they appeared in the small, weekly newspaper of that day, along with family anecdotes bring Kamiah's history to life. This is a well-researched and entertaining account by a founding father's granddaughter who collected archival pictures from state and private historical societies and museums, and who shared personal family photos never seen before. Over 75 photos and maps.
