The Cambridge High School class of 2019 would like to invite the public to the book launch party of Let My Horse Bring Me Home: A Salubria Valley, Idaho Oral History, on Wednesday, November 8 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Cambridge Exhibit Hall. All are welcome, and admission is free. Books will be available for purchase.
In 2015, ten young oral historians interviewed two-dozen long-time residents of Salubria Valley in the Upper Country of Washington County, Idaho. This book preserves their unique stories and gives us a glimpse of not only what life was like in and around the town of Cambridge many decades ago, but also how these 8th-graders genuinely connected with the past. These caringly conducted and transcribed interviews, and the photos shared by each of the interviewees, illustrate the value of ordinary lives and the importance of remembering where we came from so that -- even if we don’t have a horse to guide us -- we appreciate what and where home is.
