Inhaltsangabe: The popular mile-by-mile guide to north central Idaho along the Northwest Passage Scenic Byway from Lewiston, Idaho to Missoula, Montana. Newly revised, 2010 edition from long-time residents who have toured over 5000 heritage travelers along the Lewis & Clark Trail in Nez Perce Country. Special sections on flora and fauna, 8 side trips including the Lolo Trail, and background chapters on the early Nez Perces, the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the missionaries, the 1860s gold rush, outlaws and vigilantes, and the Nez Perce War of 1877. A wealth of information presented in a clear, concise, lyrical manner, states The Missoulian. A 6th printing and great read for locals and visitors alike.
Umschlagtext: Should you awaken at dawn on the banks of the Lochsa River to watch the sun creeping up the backsides of the Bitterroots, you will have found your welcome to Clearwater Country. Or perhaps you'll watch an osprey searching for rainbows in a riffle of the Middle Fork of the Clearwater River, or leave warm footprints to cool in shadows of evening drifting across a white sand beach, or suck deeply the wafting scent of syringa blossoms that greet you along the roadside. With each experience you will find your welcome to Clearwater Country.
An unforgotten past also beckons--memories and imaginings of a land, people and passage of time rich in history. Along your route you may smell the smoke of an ancient Nez Perce village; squint at a September sun glistening off the faces of the Lewis and Clark expeditionists as they knee their horses, belly deep, across the river; point to General Howard's cavalry on the crest of a ridge while watching Nez Perce families paddle their hastily constructed buffalo hide bulboats to the gravel shoreline at your feet. You may hear the whistle of a nineteenth century sternwheeler or the distant gunshots of bandits relieving another miner of his hard-won gold dust. Throughout Clearwater Country you will travel midst the ghosts of a true Western saga--Indians and explorers, missionaries and miners, outlaws and vigilantes, settlers and soldiers ... and the many conflicts and triumphs of a young and growing America.
And yes, we too welcome you and invite you to let us be your guides through the sun and shadows, the space and time of Clearwater Country.
