Pin It

Best sorry to lose him 

William Studebaker

Editors' Picks

Earlier this year, Idaho lost one of its most prolific writers when Bill Studebaker died while kayaking in eastern Idaho. During his career, he published a dozen books of poetry, prose and several anthologies--most of which focused on the West as a place full of both change and tradition. His last book of poetry,

About a Place Called Home

, was never published, but


had the chance to print several of the poems from that collection. Studebaker's love of his home state was clear to the end, especially in a line from the title poem of that last book, "This is where the Gods / practice simple things / like up and down and forever."
(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
