Abstract:

"Idaho's battle for existence, like the battle fought in all countries wherein precious metals are mined, belongs to the past and can never come again. The men and women who fought her fight, dead though most of them are, will never be surpassed by any yet to come in this republic. No such conditions as those which surrounded the early settlers in the territory, social or otherwise, will surround another people; and the influence of environment and events produced better results from peculiar natural resources than Idaho's most sanguine partisans ever imagined. The first settlement, the laborious progress, and the final success are epochs. Natural barriers, roving hostile Indians, immense land areas void of transportation facilities--all these were stupendous obstacles. Idaho's battle was a battle royal and was won on its merits. The incessant struggle for civilization evolved and developed a strong line of men and women whose descendants have proved equal to stringent demands of life and duty."--Preface.
