The Middle Fork canyon is rich in history. From the original Native American inhabitants the Tukuduka, "Shoshone Mountain Sheepeater", to hearty prospectors and homesteaders, to the exploratory river runners, there are many chapters along its banks that tell incredible stories. If you would like to read about the Middle Fork and it history before the trip, there are a couple of great books available. The Middle Fork, A Guide; by Johnny Carrey and Cort Conley, published by Backeddy Books and Impassable Canyon- Journey Down the Middlefork ; by Matt Leidecker, published by Sun Valley Press. Both available from Amazon.com. As we travel the river each day we make a point of stopping at pictographs, old mining activity, and historical cabin sites to share these stories with our guests.
