Ted Trueblood (1913-1982) loved to write about the outdoors almost as much as he loved the outdoors itself. Raised on a family farm in the southwestern corner of Idaho, Trueblood made a living by writing and taking pictures of the things he liked to do best -hunting, fishing, camping, and cooking in the great outdoors. From his home in Idaho, he contributed hundreds of articles to Field & Stream and other outdoor journals, edited several book-length anthologies of his work, and, as the years went by, played an evermore influential role in the conservation and environmental movements in the American West. The Ted Trueblood collection at Boise State University preserves the extraordinary literary and photographic legacy of a legendary outdoorsman and writer.
