Roads Less Traveled Through the Coeur d’Alenes: Historical Driving Tours of Benewah, Kootenai, and Shoshone Counties

By Dorothy Dohlgren and Simone Kincaid




As I grew up in Coeur d’Alene in the early 1950’s one of my greatest pleasures was taking a Sunday drive with my grandparents, Dr. and Mrs. John T Wood. Having lived in Coeur d’Alene since about the turn of the century (the one in 1900), they had great stories to tell at nearly every turn of the road. Well, they are no longer here, but you can have the same wonderful entertainment – not to mention education while you drive with this guide. It’s the next best thing to knowledgeable grandparents!

What a great resource! This well-researched, well-organized and well-written guide is an adventure back into history while driving through North Idaho counties. Complete with maps, tour segment distances and estimated times of each tour, the book is full of interesting facts and anecdotes. Reading it made me want to get out and explore!
