‘Legendary’ lake book resurfaces
Updated guidebook to Lake Pend Oreille back in print

SANDPOINT, ID – The most comprehensive book of history, lore and recreation about our lake, “Legendary Lake Pend Oreille: Idaho’s Wilderness of Water” has just been released in an updated new printing.

Written by principal author Jane Fritz, along with a cadre of contributors, the guide book is touted as a “bible” for all things connected to our magnificent Lake Pend Oreille.

First published in 2009, the second printing of the book sold out last year.

“Lake Pend Oreille is much more than just our playground: It is a rich resource of history, Native culture, and numerous resident plants and wildlife who call it home,” said Fritz. “I’m so pleased that a third printing of the lake book is now available… It’s a chance for readers to both learn about and explore this precious resource.”

A stout book at more than 400 pages, the new 2019 printing of Legendary Lake Pend Oreille has been thoroughly updated. It includes a beautiful fold-out lake map, plus boating resources, trails and history, along with panoramic photos. The third printing includes new trails, in a chapter authored by inveterate hiker Jim Mellen, who has also authored the popular hiking guides, “Trails of the Wild Selkirks” and “Trails of the Wild Cabinets.”

As a special plus, the book includes sections with beautiful color photography, plus a section of classic Ross Hall black-and-whites.

Published by Keokee Books in Sandpoint, it is available at local bookstores, including Vanderford’s and the Corner Book Store, and other retailers around the lake. Online find it at
