reviewed River Went Out of Eden on + 2 more book reviews
A city girl born in Detroit never dreamed that attending Columbia University in New York would lead to living and having a family in the Idaho Primitive area. Trading in academia for wilderness, this book is the powerful story of the author's eight years on the Salmon River with her husband and his uncle, Sylvan Ambrose Hart, the last of the Mountain Men.

This account of a modern woman learning to cope without the conveniences of modern life and without family or community, reminscent of the piioneers who settled the west, is told with wit and a spare uncluttered style. It was a life of hard work in a setting of unparalleled natural beauty, filled with drama and excitement and drudgery, building a house on a foundation torn from the rock of the mountain or simply traveling the road or the river.
