“Alta California” a Conversation with Nick Neely @ The Community Library | Sun Valley | Idaho | United States
6:00 pm
In his new book, “Alta California: From San Diego to San Francisco, a Journey on Foot to Rediscover the Golden State,” Hailey author Nick Neely chronicles his 650-mile trek on foot from San Diego to San Francisco, following the route of the first overland Spanish expedition into what was soon called Alta California. Led by Gaspar de Portolá in 1769, the expedition sketched a route that would become, in part, the famous El Camino Real. It laid the foundation for the Golden State we know today, a place that remains as mythical and captivating as any in the world. Neely grew up in California but realized how little he knew about its history. So he set off to learn it bodily, with just a backpack, trekking through stretches of California both lonely and urban. For twelve weeks, following the journal of expedition missionary Father Juan Crespí, Neely kept pace with the ghosts of the Portolá expedition―nearly 250 years later. Weaving natural and human history, Alta California relives his adventure, tells the story of Native cultures and the Spanish missions that soon devastated them, and explores the evolution of California and its landscape. The result is a collage of past and ...

The Wisdom of Wolves: Lessons from the Sawtooth Pack @ The Community Library
6:00 pm
How can one put a realistic face on an animal that has been demonized and villainized for hundreds of years? Jim and Jamie Dutcher have, and they continue to do so as they travel the nation sharing their unique account of how they lived with wolves. Partnering with the National Geographic Society and speaking on their own, they have given more than 200 presentations about the Sawtooth Pack and other wolves they have come to know. After speaking to students, ranchers, wolf biologists, elk hunters, and at universities, symphony halls, country clubs and sold-out audiences around the country and beyond, Jim and Jamie will bring their adventure home to Ketchum. The Wisdom of Wolves: Lessons from the Sawtooth Pack is a new multi-media presentation adapted from one of the Dutchers’ newest books on wolves, and enhanced with stunning photographs and clips from three of their Emmy award-winning films. Join us for this free, public presentation from Jim and Jamie Dutcher, founders of Living with Wolves, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to educational outreach and research.
