John Leiberg was a prospector and plant lover who came to the Inland Northwest with the Northern
Pacific Railroad in 1884. His wife Carrie worked as a family physician and raised a difficult child
while they carved out a homestead on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille.
Their saga, loaded with unlikely turns, reflects an American West on the ragged edge between frontier and modern times.
