Our curbside hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday.

Jeri Parker will read from and sign her new memoir, My Seasons of Wilderness

My Seasons of Wilderness is Parker's account of her return to her homeland in Idaho's Targhee National Forest. She comes back in sorrow in the dark of night and pitches an old shepherd's tent in the meadow where she had scampered with cousins as a girl. She sleeps uneasily and wakes to an alarming sound. When she steps out of the tent the next morning, she is met by a hundred sheep. Laughter returns as she exchanges greetings with the shepherd and she knows she will stay. Plans for a cabin are already forming in her mind.

What she will build is the independence and bravado that will remake her life. When her friends come to rescue her, instead they celebrate her daring and her connection to a world that has almost vanished, a world of stillness and beauty, of chipmunks and squirrels and rabbits and osprey and, yes, bears, one of which comes in for a visit.
