Shoshone-Bannock tribal member Donna E. Houtz McArthur grew up hearing the stories of her grandfather Edward Edmo Sr. The stories, handed down orally from generation to generation, as is the tradition of tribes, inspired McArthur to write and publish a book this spring called: "When The Smoke Goes Straight Up"
- a compilation of 27 of her beloved grandfather's tales.
McArthur said her grandfather Edmo, a Shoshone-Bannock tribal member, was a grandson to Chief Arimo. He was a horseman and a cowboy who "had a love for telling stories."
