What in the Sam Hill … ? | fiddlepeg

What in the Sam Hill … ? | fiddlepeg: "Sam Hill. There was a real person by that name–at least two, actually–but both of them postdated the expression by a hundred years or more. Even so, the question “What in the Sam Hill … ?” was more than appropriate to describe the elder Sam’s ideas and activities. You’ll read a bit about him in Building the Columbia River Highway, but, as with many of the subjects in the book, he could be a study in himself. In fact, he has been. John Tuhy wrote a great biography of Sam Hill in 1983 and called it, “Sam Hill: the Prince of Castle Nowhere.” And others have written books about some of Sam’s “lady friends.”"
