The little patch of Idaho that gives this book its name lies South of Lewiston on a rise of land called the Craig Mountains. The author, Dan Miller, M.D., takes us to the village of Fairburn on a Saturday evening in 1902 and spins a web of intertwined stories leading from there to the surrounding communities of Lewiston, Winchester, Grangeville, Cottonwood, Culdesac, Lapwai, Genesee, and Waha. He then follows the communities of people who live there including the Nez Perce, loggers, railroad workers, cowboys, bankers, and homesteaders.
