Jeff Burnside at the St. John Heritage Museum

Meet Jeff Burnside, co-author of Cashup Davis: The Inspiring Life of a Secret Mentor

Among the first white settlers on the Palouse, British immigrant Cashup Davis and his family opened an immensely popular stagecoach stop. When he insists on building an opulent hotel atop one of eastern Washington’s highest sites, it all comes crashing down, but his business acumen, eccentricity, intelligence, and unstoppable drive remain an inspiration.

“What a story! With lucid writing and illuminating detail culled from historical and family documents, they tell a compelling story as unusual as their subject’s name.”—Tom Yulsman, Director of the Center for Environmental Journalism at the University of Colorado Boulder

“We loved it! At a time when the world can use an inspirational story, along comes an uplifting winner in the little-known story of Cashup Davis.”—Gerald Posner, author of PHARMA and Case Closed, and Trisha Posner, author of The Pharmacist of Auschwitz
