Sawtooth Tales

In the beginning, the Sawtooth Mountains were distant, forbidding and unexplored, except for the Indians who made summer visits to hunt and fish. Lewis and Clark gave the mysterious peaks a wide berth. Mines flourished, then disappeared. The area remained almost unknown to the outside world until well into the 20th century. In 1936 W. Averell Harriman and the Union Pacific Railroad founded Sun Valley and turned Ketchum, Idaho and the surrounding area into one of the nation's top recreational areas. Dick d'Easum spent a lifetime studying this remote wilderness. For more than a half century he collected stories of its people, its history and legends. He assembled his stories into SAWTOOTH TALES, the first book about this area sometimes called "The Alps of America."
