This is an fascinating look into what made Idaho the way it is. Stapilus delves into 33 events (not 31 as mentioned in the description), including the first city lit by atomic power (Arco), the Teton Dam flood, and the capital being whisked away to Boise from Lewiston. It is very easy to read and really interesting.

Great short book with 2-3page stories about historical events that helped shape the state of Idaho. I am now motivated to go visit each location from each story and photograph them for my own personal nerdery. :-)
