Publisher Comments:

ANNOTATION: The last of the lower forty-eight to gain statehood in 1912, Arizona now tops the list of best places to live and visit. For the history behind this current status, join Arizona official state historian and beloved raconteur Marshall Trimble on the state's highways and byways. Along the way meet Fathers Eusebio Kino and Francisco Garces, Non-Assessable Smith, Ned Beale and his camels, Nellie Bush and her steamboats, "Great Western" Sarah Bowman, and the Navajo Code Talkers. Find out why Why's called Why; where Arizona's Civil War battlefields are; what happens at the Zuni River Reservation where no Zuni live; and the possible whereabouts of the Lost Six-Shooter Mine. From Fredonia to Naco, Oatman to Show Low, Ganado to the London Bridge, visitors, newcomers, and old-timers alike will delight in this classic of history and travel. Originally published in 1986, now updated, expanded, and redesigned.

Book News Annotation:

Following the courses of U.S. and state road highway routes through Arizona, Trimble (official historian of the state) provides snapshot portraits of a wide array of events and figures that have shaped and defined Arizona. He details such events as train robberies in Cochise and Geronimo's battles against the U.S. military, while simultaneously offering summary histories of numerous communities located along the roadsides.
