Twin Falls History

Meet the Author


Author, Jim Gentry, looking across the Snake River Canyon.

Dr. Jim Gentry arrived in Twin Falls in 1969 at the age of 23 to begin teaching history at the College of Southern Idaho. Having lived in five other states, Jim was glad to have found "his home." That love encouraged historical research and an ongoing fascination with local history. This book illustrates a concept that took shape early in Jim's study; that this region was in the middle and on the edge even before Twin Falls was founded in 1904. Contact Jim Gentry.
