About the Book

This book contains the musings of an Owyhee Mountain gypsy, inspired by the history and beauty of the mountains, and the interesting people met there. “You were real once As real as I as I stand here And try to imagine the scene Buildings line your street and horses go clip-clopping by Miners, housewives, and businessmen All are bustling around me going about their daily lives I almost feel the stir of air as you brush by me I turn but your flitting shadows are just beyond my sight And I hear your soft whispers in the wind....... ” excerpt from “Whispers in the Wind”

About the Author

Roberta (Bertie) Whittemore, a native of rural upstate New York, and her husband, Gary, moved to the Treasure Valley of southern Idaho in 2010. She now spends her summers camping near and working in the old mining town of Silver City in the Owyhee Mountains. Bertie's spare time is spent around camp or exploring with her Welsh Corgi, Dewey. Her days' experiences and stories of life long ago inspire writings such as those found in this book. The months of October through May are spent at home in Caldwell, where she passes her time writing, crafting, researching history in her museum/workshop, cherishing time with family, and gazing through her living room windows, where beautiful views of her beloved Owyhee Mountains beckon her to return.
