Lynna Howard (at left) and Leland Howard (with hat, at right) gave a top-notch multi-media presentation of their trademarked show Art Meets Adventure at Dark Horse Saturday night, all about their most recent book from Caxton Press, Backcountry Roads Idaho.  The slide-show took us all from the Owyhee canyonlands to Lemhi Pass, with shots from all seasons and detailed (often funny!) descriptions of their experiences finding the 30-plus “expeditions” highlighted in the book .

We had a small but appreciative audience (I’m blaming it on the beginning of spud break and probably our last good weekend for folks to actually get out there on those backcountry roads themselves!)  

Of course, we have signed copies of their book at 10% off through this week.  This makes a wonderful gift for anyone who loves the Gem State. Call to reserve a copy, and/or pop on by and check it out!

Photographer Leland Howard and writer Lynna Howard will bring their exciting multi-media presentation Art Meets Adventure™ to Dark Horse on Saturday, September 26. The event will begin at 7 p.m. and include a reception and booksigning of their most recent publication, Backcountry Roads—Idaho. BackcountryRoadsIdaho

Published by Caxton Press of Caldwell, the Howards’ book includes more than 100 photographs, GPS coordinates, 30 color maps, and detailed descriptions of expeditions for would-be explorers.

To me, this book is a rarity — a guidebook that is also a work of art—a valuable tool for anyone who wishes to experience firsthand the rugged beauty of scenic Idaho. 

Leland and Lynna are a brother-and-sister team who live in Shelley — they’re connected to Teton Valley, though, because another of their siblings, Isabel Waddell, makes her home here, operates Allstate Insurance, and is also an active participant in the Teton Valley Women’s Book Club. FYI: several years ago, Lynna wrote a piece about Driggs for Idaho Magazine, and Leland has competed in numerous juried art shows presented by the Teton Arts Council.

Art Meets Adventure™ is expected to provide both a visual and auditory feast; Leland’s slides are projected from medium-format originals, a technological achievement that provides audiences with a high-resolution view, accompanied with Lynna’s narration.

Idaho is crisscrossed by thousands of miles of seldom-traveled roadways, and some of the most striking features of the Gem State can only be enjoyed by exploring off the beaten track, the two say. Their book  is intended to make those remote roads more accessible to tourists and Idaho natives alike.

The entire state is covered within the Howards’ book.  Many of the featured expeditions include tips for photographers, as well as information related to hunting, fishing, biking, hiking, boating, rock climbing, traveling in a 4×4, and over-snow winter travel. History buffs will delight in tours that include Idaho’s “outdoor museums” of mining, logging, Native American culture, and Lewis & Clark’s 1805-1806 expedition. 

Backcountry Roads—Idaho,  a 240-page softbound book,  regularly retails for $27.95 but will be discounted 10% to purchasers at the bookstore throughout September as part of this month’s sale on all titles with an author’s autograph.

To reserve a copy or to make special seating arrangements, give us a call! Hope to see you here for this fun event!
