Kris Runberg Smith, author of the new book, “Wild Place: A History of Priest Lake, Idaho,” will present a program on the book including photos of the historic community at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library Thursday, Aug. 6, at 7 p.m.
Published by Washington State University Press, the book offers the first comprehensive, accurate chronicle of Priest Lake, according to the publisher.
Smith’s family has had ties to the area since her great-great grandfather, a timber cruiser, arrived in 1897. Yet despite being a location one local newspaper branded “a cult with many vacationists,” no one had ever properly recorded its history—at least according to one family member.
“As a kid I listened to my grandmother complain about each self-published memoir, claiming they didn’t get the stories right,” Smith explained. Now a professor of history at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri, she set out to change that.
Smith and Tom Weitz, a longtime resident and president of the Priest Lake Museum, spent a couple of summers there cataloging collections. Their work allowed them to utilize newly discovered historical sources and images as they pieced together the tale of an idyllic place long wrapped in myths.
Paying particular attention to significant, yet lesser-known accounts, the authors trace human survival there through multiple generations. They examine the enduring tension created by the mix of public and private lands bordering its shores. They also explore a variety of influences that impacted the region, including failed attempts at mining, the logging industry, the Forest Service, tourism, summer cabins, and fires.
The book describes one example through the words of Betty James. Threatened by fire in 1926, vacationing families buried valuables in the sand and fled to an island on the lake.
“Some 70 years later I can still recapture the terror I felt,” she recalled.
The season’s fires were devastating, and in the aftermath, the Forest Service decided to replace much of the burned acreage with more marketable timber, permanently altering the makeup of Priest Lake forests.
Smith and Weitz answer other questions, too, including how and why Priest Lake escaped grand turn-of-the-century development to remain relatively wild, how Idaho came to own its eastern half, and why its surrounding land is divided between federal and state governments.
To celebrate publication of the book, the Priest Lake Museum has created a summer 2015 exhibit to highlight topics related to Wild Place, and the Priest Lake Chamber of Commerce has designated “Priest Lake Memories” as the theme for their summer programs.
A nonprofit academic publisher concentrating on trade-oriented scholarly books with a cultural or historical relationship to the Pacific Northwest, WSU Press is associated with Washington State University located in Pullman, Washington.
Copies of the book will be available to purchase at the library program with a portion of sales benefitting the Friends of the Library.
