Boise residents Lyn Winer and Celeste Rush's book "Deep Stuff," tells the story of Nellie McArthur MacPherson who settled in the Stack Rock area west of Boise in the 1930s.
Nellie and her husband Angus, though childless, raised several children who needed a family. For years Winer and Rush had heard stories about Nellie. As part of the oral history project of the Dry Creek Historical Society, Winer and Rush were part of a committee recording oral histories with early settlers from the Dry Creek and Stack Rock environs. The authors will sign copies of Deep Stuff from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., Saturday July 27 at the Schick-Ostolasa Farmstead, 5006 West Farm Court, Boise.
Copies of the book will be available for cash or check at the signing for $18, including tax.
The authors are donating proceeds from the book to the Dry Creek Historical Society for its continued preservation of the farmstead and the history of the surrounding communities.
