Why Twin Falls is “In the Middle and on the Edge”.

In the Middle and On the Edge. The Twin Falls Region of Idaho, published in 2003, invites the question, what makes the area in the middle and on the edge?  Located east/west geographically between Pocatello in the Portneuf Valley and Boise in the Boise Valley and, north/south, between the Wood River Valley and the Great Basin in Nevada, the city is also sandwiched between the Rock Creek Canyon and the Snake River Canyon.  Throughout its history Twin Falls has been historically and culturally in the middle and on the edge in many ways.  That has influenced significantly local history.
