Spirits of the Salmon River

This book profiles the people buried in graves, marked and unmarked, along the River of No Return. From Salmon City to Whitebird, Ms. Hill's exhaustive search of the records has eked out the story behind the remains - even for those persons,decades dead, whose precise resting place is now unknown. In salvaging their stories, she accords them (and us) the comfort and respect of recollection. Rest in peace. -Cort Conley
