"Effie Proud Sutton (1887-1978) lived in Idaho's Owyhee County as a young woman. Her family built the historic Rocks and PoisonCreek half-way stations in the early 1900's. Effie has crafted a story about fictional characters, Mary and John Marcus, who start their lives together in Wagontown, a mining camp in the Owyhee Mountains. Effie's attention to detail and vivid descriptions bring southwest Idaho to life in the early 1900's. She describes the ordinary of her time, making the reader smell the dust of the new town of Caldwell; feel the isolation of winter in Wagontown; and hear the rumbling of the DeLamar mill. She recalls a time when freighters,trains, and stageacoaches were the mode of transportation; when Lake Lowell was just a controversial idea; when mining silver and gold in DeLamar and Silver City still supported a population of thousands, while Caldwell was a new railroad town of one thousand. Effie Proud Sutton has left her descendants and the people of Idaho a fascinating legacy in this novel." from the back cover.
