Spokane-based author and naturalist Jack Nisbet is renowned for his books exploring the human and natural history of the Intermountain West and Northwest, and his latest is no different. The Dreamer and the Doctor tells the story of Dr. Carrie Leiberg, a pioneer-era physician, and her botanist husband John, as they move to Idaho in 1885 to establish a homestead and make some money in the mineral trade. It didn’t quite work out that way as they both found themselves fighting for the health of the public lands surrounding them, and Nisbet recounts their struggles that ultimately helped shape the identity of much of the Inland Northwest. You have two chances to hear Nisbet talk about his new book the next couple Thursdays.
