"W.A. Dissmore of North Dakota, who has been looking over this section, was so favorably impressed that he bought two lots between the Idaho Store and John Pomeroy's and as soon as lumber can be secured in the spring he will put up a building in which he open a general store." -- Kamiah Progress, March 1, 1907. What was it that attracted Grandpa Dissmore to Kamiah, Idaho, where the Lewis and Clark Expedition had traveled 100 years earlier? While trying to answer this question, the author found she was also writing the early story of a Pacific Northwestern community. Enjoy this well-researched and entertaining account by Dissmore's granddaughter, Virginia Dempsey Woods Meyer. Bibliographic notes. Over 80 historical photos and maps. Discussion topics included.
