Do any of you know where I could find a copy of the book "All along the river by Nellie Ireton Miles"? My Kjiersgaard/Kiersgaard/Kesgard family is mentioned in it and I would like to obtain a copy if I could.

If you know of one, please contact me at mamads@speedyquick.net or 584-3249 in Ola, Idaho.

Sincerely,
Darlene Mingus

Hi Darlene,
I'd contact the Gem County Historical Museum, 208-365-9530 or send them an email to gemcohs@bigskytel.com .

If that doesn't work, check Google Books, amazon.com, Abe Books, etc.

Thank you for the reminder and suggestions. I've asked several times but it's been awhile so I just sent them an email. The library here in Ola has 2 copies but won't sell me one because they want to keep one for an emergency.

I paid abt. $100 for my copy abt. 15 yrs ago at Yesteryear Book Shop in downtown Nampa and it was well worth it for the history "all along" the Payette River.

I am the great granddaughter of Nellie Ireton Mills.

We only have a few copies left in our family and there is was only a few books printed. Idaho's Historical library does have 2 copies for reference and you can make copies there.

Thank you for your personal interest in her book. She was a great author and historian.

Please call me if you would like at 208-602-1274.

Yes! By all means it's time for a 2nd printing! Since reading the earlier post I've heard that copies are now going for over $200 a copy.

Yeah! So glad that you got the book. It is a great history of families in Idaho and I cheerish that it still keeps some stories alive today.

Enjoy the summer evenings reading about true IDAHO families.

Yikes...Idaho history should be affordable. It may not be real soon for the 2nd printing but keep your fingers crossed/pray...it will happen.
