The Lemhi County Historical Society and Sacajawea Center are hosting a program on Hope Benedict’s book: Living with the Landscape: Mining, Ranching, and Conservation in the American West. The program is on January 13th at 12pm at the Salmon Grange, located at 110 Terrace Street.
Please bring a sack lunch. Dessert and liquid refreshments will be provided (we are still easing back in after such a long hiatus!)
This program is free of charge. Any donations will ensure future programming and Salmon Grange maintenance.
Dr. Hope Benedict, historian and volunteer director of the Lemhi County Historical Society and Museum, will discuss her research and new book, Living with the Landscape: Mining, Ranching, and Conservation in the American West. The regional hisory explores the evolution of settlment in Lemhi County, focusing on Bohannon Creek (Eagle Valley Ranch) and the Shenon Ranch (Pine Creek Ranch near Baker). Replete with intrigue, romance, murder, and mayhem (a little, anyway!), Living with the Landscape provides an in depth look at transitions in the American West, from the 1860s to the twenty-first century. Join us at noon on January 13th to learn why this took Hope 11 1/2 years to complete.
