BOOK OF THE YEAR: 2019 Idaho Library Association


Growing up in Ketchum, Idaho in the 1950s, Dana Stewart Quinney found magic in the wilds of Idaho's Wood River Valley - unplowed, unskied, untracked, and unpeopled.


Her memoir, Wildflower Girl, recounts the life of an adventurous girl born for a life beyond the trail, leading her to a distinguished career in field biology. From tales of fishing with her father - a fishing guide for Ernest Hemingway and the renowned Sun Valley Resort; to a discovery of new species - each beautifully written chapter takes you on a nostalgic journey of mystery, adventure, and the magic of nature.


"A refreshing and delightful read. Dana expresses her early life experiences with nature so clearly and vividly - it reminded me not to be so overwhelmed with present day issues and to appreciate the past events in my life. Thanks, Dana." - Peter Walker, District Forest Ranger of the U.S. Forest Service (Ret)
