VOICES FROM THE SNAKE RIVER PLAIN

An old Mexican ghost story, haunting landscapes and a road trip with Louis Amour and Zane Grey. These are some of the tales you will read in Voices from the Snake River Plain, a collection of short stories, poems and essays from award-winning writers, Bonnie Dodge and Patricia Santos Marcantonio.We tell stories about people who haven’t yet found their own voice, or of those who have lost their voices along their travels. Sometimes our stories rise out of the landscape and from dreams. Sometimes they reach into the past, or into the future, but mostly, our stories echo the human heart.

Many of the selections have been printed in other publications or have won writing awards. The foreword was written Diane Josephy Peavey, author of Bitterbrush Country: Living on the Edge of the Land, and an essayist on Boise Public Radio.

“This book is a small treasure… In Voices from the Snake River Plain we learn there is beauty in the landscape around us and people with stories to tell. And much to learn from both,” Peavey wrote.

 ON HOLY GROUND by Patricia Santos Marcantonio
Catholics have always enjoyed beautiful churches and St. Edward’s is no exception. It has been called the most beautiful church in Idaho. Award winning author Marcantonio celebrates its beauty, history, art and faith through the words of the parishioners, priests and visitors to the church. She details the stained glass windows, angels, bells, pillars, cornices. ceilings and all the other architectural details that went into creating the beauty of the structure which helps sustain the faith of the people who call St. Edward’s home.

Twin Falls came into being with the coming of irrigation water in 1904. Early Catholics met in various places around town. The Twin Falls Canal Company donated land at the corner of Second Avenue and Fifth Street and ground was broken on the church building in 1920. The St. Edward Catholic Church building was completed and consecrated in 1921. Marcantonio interweaves the history of St. Edward’s building and congregation with the history of the city from the beginning to the present.

The book contains 112 pages. Photos are by Bonnie Dodge. Cost is $10 plus tax and postage. For a copy send email to riverstpress@outlook.com.

  1. The Theatre Education program at the University of Arizona, School of Theatre, Film & Television produces a touring play for children each year in the fall. I came across your collection of stories, Red Ridin’ in the Hood and other Cuentos, and liked it very much. I wondered if you would be willing to let my students and I dramatize some of the stories for our production next year (fall 2012). If so, who would we contact for securing the rights, paying royalties, etc.
