John McCarthy moved to Idaho in 1977 to work trail crew in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness for the U.S. Forest Service. He later ran a range crew and worked ranches in Hells Canyon and the Salmon River country. He started writing about wilderness as a reporter for the Lewiston Morning Tribune, where he also covered cops, courts, arts, and agriculture for 10 years. He switched to environmental organizing and advocacy for two decades as the conservation director for the Idaho Conservation league and was Idaho forest campaign director for the Wilderness Society. He is now a jazz disc jockey at Radio Boise doing his Jazz Beyond the Sky show.
