During the depression days of the early 1930s the Jordan family--Len Jordan, his wife Grace, and their three small children--moved to an Idaho sheep ranch in the Snake River gorge just below Hell's Canyon, deepest scratch on the face of North America.

Living off the grid during the Great Depression, relying on neighbors, ingenuity and grit, Grace Jordon homeschools her children while cooking for dozens without electricity, scavenging for fat to make soap and trying to ignore the results of a bad fall. I shivered as they rode narrow ledges, bundled in blankets to travel out, enjoyed the companionship of neighbors at the makeshift Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, and marveled at the creation of a bathtub. Fascinating for anyone but if you're going (or have been) to Hell's Canyon you'll love reading about the occupants of the Kirkwood Ranch in the 30s.

I loved this book, "Home Below Hell's Canyon". Grace Jordan and her family were so resourceful when they went to a remote part of the Snake River to raise sheep. She has so much common sense, and took each problem as it came along and treated it with humor.
