Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Settled in 1872 by Spanish pioneers from New Mexico, the town of St. Johns began as a farming and sheep-raising community far removed from the county seat and territorial capital of Prescott. Soon after, the Mormon Church, represented by Bishop David King Udall, purchased 1,200 acres for Mormon colonizers to settle. With the building of the Lyman Dam, the town was finally able to provide adequate water for crops and began to thrive. The building of a power plant in the 1970s doubled the population of St. Johns, but many of the original settlers' descendants are still there as well, canning their gardens' harvest and dusting from their homes the dirt brought in by the wind that never stops blowing. Although the streets are now paved and many of the old buildings and homes have long been razed, St. Johns has a unique story to tell.

Book News Annotation:

Congressman Mo Udall, one of St. John's most famous native sons, once said that: "St. Johns is so small, you can't even have lust in your own heart." Cameron Udall, a seventh-generation St. Johns resident, relates the history of this Arizona town settled by Spaniards and then Mormons. The town had its share of outlaws too. The book includes some 200 period photographs. Not indexed. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
