American Indians left evidence of their occupation and migration in the form of petroglyphs, pictographs, and game walls. Native grasses and flowers flourish. Birds, coyotes, fox; pronghorn, jackrabbits, horned toads, timber rattlesnakes and more frequent these hideaways. Explore the website for the book, Exploring Idaho’s High Desert
