Keokee Books, the small press in Sandpoint, Idaho, that publishes nonfiction natural history, history and guide books, has three new titles focusing on the Inland Northwest.
“Selkirks Spectacular” is a photographic journey around the spectacular Selkirk Mountains of northern Idaho, eastern Washington and southeastern British Columbia. The 180-page coffee table book follows the International Selkirk Loop with amazing images by photographers Jerry Pavia and Tim Cady, along with chapters by Canadian Ross Klatte on the history, geology, communities, natural features, attractions, and the flora and fauna of this beautiful corner of the earth.
Mike Reeb’s “Inland Salish Journey” offers the most comprehensive history yet of the fascinating fur trade era and the interactions between the Inland Salish Indian tribes and new arrivals from 1800 to 1877. The 318-page book is drawn from source documents as well as journals, manuscripts and early published works.
And finally, the book “Many Waters” is a testament to the beauty of an extraordinary place – the Walla Walla Valley and vicinity. The 224-page coffee table book examines the natural history of this remarkable region, one that American Indians called Wallah, or Many Waters. Principal authorship is by Whitman College professor Bob Carson. Lushly illustrated with paintings by Northwest landscape artist Leslie Cain and multiple photographers, it includes essays and poetry as well.
