Description


The Boise Guide by Vardis Fisher is finally making its way to the public eye after sitting forgotten for 80 years in a Library of Congress storage box.Originally completed for the Federal Writers' Project in 1939, the manuscript was never published. But it is now presented as Fisher intended it--with additional pictures and an introduction by Alessandro Meregaglia, the archivist who discovered it after following a trail of vague references and footnotes. Fisher, with his characteristic biting wit and keen observation, allows us a glimpse of Boise in the last days of the Great Depression-- a snapshot of our past through the eyes of a beloved Idaho author.
