Prospector Club Archives

The Prospector Club was a popular newsletter series that the Idaho State Historical Society produced from 2003-2009.  In this charming, old timey newsletter, Idaho students followed the adventures of prospector Lucky Noah and his mule as they learned about important topics in Idaho History. Back by popular demand, the Prospector Club Archives are available for download. It is a great resource for Idaho students, and anyone interested in learning more about Idaho History!
