It’s hard to miss the beautiful and diverse landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. From rolling fields to mountain ranges and wilderness, there’s never a dull moment of scenery in the region. What locals may not know, however, are the stories of those who care for these lands. In his new book, Working the Wilderness: Early Leaders for Wild Lands, John McCarthy introduces men and women who’ve spent their lives protecting the forests of Idaho and Montana. The book celebrates the work and passion of these people, highlighting how they’ve carried on the tradition of forestry and the legacies they’ve left. The Boise-based author is stopping in Spokane to share his book and discuss the people who take care of our beautiful Pacific Northwest.
