Publisher Comments:

From the thirteenth-century creation of the Hohokams irrigation canals to the incredible building of the Hoover Dam in the twentieth century, It Happened in Arizona takes you on a behind-the-scenes tour of thirty-six compelling episodes from the vibrant history of the Grand Canyon State.
 
Join the dozen Spanish conquistadors who happened upon the Grand Canyon in 1540, but didnt manage to get too far down. Learn the true stories of the Gunfight at the OK Corral, the valor of the Buffalo soldiers, and the inglorious death of Geronimo. Recall the largest and most destructive conflagration in Arizonas history, the Rodeo-Chediski Fire of 2002.

Synopsis:

It Happened in Arizona features thirty-six episodes from Arizonas history—from the thirteenth-century creation of the Hohokams irrigation canals to the incredible building of the Hoover Dam in the twentieth century. From explorations of the Grand Canyon to a stagecoach robbery, these episodes paint a lively portrait of the state.
