Jack Nisbet ~ Author & Naturalist
Jack’s latest book, The Dreamer and the Doctor, traces the saga of John and Carrie Leiberg across the Intermountain West and beyond. 1893, Leiberg wrangled a farm wagon across the Columbia Basin from Spokane to Stevens Pass, collecting a fascinating variety of shrub-steppe flora and observing farm and ranch life on the edge of the frontier. Join us for a slide presentation to retrace Leiberg’s journey and think about the Interior landscape, then and now.
