Annie Pike Greenwood

Last week, Idaho Public Television broadcast a new episode of its “Idaho Experience” series, this time featuring the story of a woman with deep Magic Valley ties – Annie Pike Greenwood. She and her family settled on the Northside, near Hazelton, and she wrote about her experiences in a book that was published in 1934.

If you didn’t catch the initial airing, you can see it online (or check their schedule for a rerun). And, if you want to learn more about Greenwood, we have copies of her book, We Sagebrush Folks, available for check out.
