Episode 96 – Bringing History Alive with Kenneth Thomasma
In this week’s episode of the Jackson Hole Connection, Stephan visits with Kenneth Thomasma. After 12 years of working at a summer camp in Montana, Ken fell in love with the mountains. In 1977, Ken and his wife decided to make them their home and left Michigan to move out to Jackson Hole. Moving out to Jackson gave Ken the time he needed to write his first book which was inspired by the story of Sacajawea’s friend, Naya Nuki.
In this episode, Ken talks about running the Kelly School, leading campaigns, living in Turkey in 1954 and writing historically-inspired young adult fiction and non-fiction.
