Grade 5-12-- Similar in format, style, and tone to the "Enchantment of America" series (Childrens), this book features a gorgeous cover and more full-color photographs that are both clearer and more attractive than the older series. The substantial "Facts at a Glance" section makes this book far easier to use for reports. Two pages under "Challenges for Tomorrow" give a few events from 1988-1990, focusing on environmental concerns. The past is well covered, but present and recent developments are given little coverage. Although there is some mention of new business growth, there is little on architectural building, important sports figures, or the boom in Boise, and there is no mention of international jazz great, Gene Harris. Float-tube fishing, developed here, has no mention, nor does backpacking. However, the book is a good addition to state collections. --Susannah Price, Boise Public Library, ID
