This is Tim Woodward’s second time around as a columnist. A year after retiring from The Idaho Statesman, he decided he was crazy enough to give it another go. His columns now appear on this blog and, every other Sunday in the Statesman Life section.

Destination Idaho, Tim’s latest book, is available at the Idaho Statesman, 1200 N. Curtis Road in Boise, or on Amazon.com. For copies of his other books still in print, “The Department of Yarns” and “Tiger on the Road; the life of Vardis Fisher,” e-mail him at woodwardblog@hotmail.com.
