John McCarthy's new book, Working the Wilderness: Early Leaders For Wild Lands, tells true stories about men and women who established how to work in and be in the wilderness. John will introduce these leaders for wilderness from Idaho and Montana through a presentation of stories and pictures. As one of the founders of the Idaho Trail Association, sponsor for the evening, and as a leader of ITA trail crews every year, John will share ideas on how to keep these wilderness heroes' legacies alive through volunteer projects.
