Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness History Project

1920 - 20110

This collection represents the digital objects of the Selway-Bitterrot Wilderness History Project, which is a NEH funded exploration into the human aspects of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness. Located in the Northern Rocky Mountains at the center of the largest wilderness complex in the lower 48, the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness is iconic in the wilderness preservation system. Although human beings have been steadily interacting with the land that now comprises the Selway-Bitterroot since prehistory, the human impact on the area is negligible compared to other wild lands in the U.S. Why? What kinds of people chose this area as their home? What kinds of decisions did they make about living on the land? This project attempts to answer these and other questions.
