Outdoor Conversations: February 2018

Tuesday, February 20, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Margaret Fuller at Rediscovered Books!

Tuesday, February 20 at 7 p.m.  Margaret Fuller, A Lifetime of Hiking Idaho

Margaret Fuller will be sharing her experiences and photos of hiking Idaho for nearly forty years. "The grand dame of Idaho hiking, Fuller was prodded to start writing guides for one simple reason. She was tired of getting lost trying to take her five children on hikes....In the process (of writing her books) she has probably become Idaho's best known hiker." -- Karen Bossick, Wood River Journal, July, 2005 

Margaret Fuller wrote the first comprehensive guidebook to any Idaho area.  In 1979,  Trails of the Sawtooth and White Cloud Mountains  was first published (The title was changed for this sixth edition to show what the area was called during the campaign for its wilderness.).  Since then, she has written and/or co-authored four other guidebooks to Idaho trails, three books of natural history (on  mountains, forest fires, and wild berries) and a book on the history of Idaho ski areas. She has hiked more than 6,000 miles on Idaho trails and has given more than 250 slide shows about the subjects of her books.  Margaret has been given several awards for her writing and her contributions to the outdoors in Idaho.

The Outdoor Conversations Series shines a spotlight on authors who connect readers with the wilderness.  Discover new writers both fiction and non-fiction that will take you places you've never dreamed about and meet others who want to journey with you.  This series is produced in partnership with the Selway Bitterroot Frank Church Foundation   

This series meets on the Third Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. in January, February, March, April, May, July, September, October and November
