Timothy Nolan s Idaho 1862-1890, is a factual history of life in the mining communities and supply towns of central Idaho during its territorial period, penned as a historical narrative by fictitious Timothy Nolan. Nolan writes his reminiscence in 1890, nostalgically looking back over his twenty-eight years in the territory, where he arrived as a prospective miner and transitioned into a contributing member of the new and developing community of Lewiston. By presenting the history in the voice of someone who lived through those years, Simon-Smolinski recounts the factual events and describes the actual people and places in a highly readable, fast paced, first person interpretation.
