7003 Days: 21 Years in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness
by Jim Akenson with Holly Akenson
265 Pages - Softcover
Deep in the Idaho wilderness the last vestiges of Old Idaho linger.
In 1982, an eager young couple seeking adventure and challenge, Jim and Holly Akenson, moved to a log cabin in the back country to manage Taylor Ranch, the University of Idaho's wilderness research station. In 7003 DAYS, Jim describes their encounters with wildlife and nature: tracking wolves and cougars, using mules for transportation and ranch work, and introducing university students to life in the rugged Salmon River Mountains of Central Idaho.
