Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Dozen Mind-Boggling Tales from the Grand Canyon State
 
• Pima Indian Ira Hayes made for a most reluctant war hero after helping raise the flag at Iwo Jima. Did post-traumatic stress disorder figure in his early death?
 
• Legend has it that the ghosts of Abby, an abandoned wife, and Noble, her cat, have haunted Prescotts Hotel Vendome for more than eighty years. But did they ever exist to begin with?
 
• Was Pearl Hart—Americas last stagecoach robber, and the only woman to achieve fame in this pursuit—“a strident voice for womens emancipation,” a daughter out to help her dying  mother, or a cruel-hearted desperado?
 
• What really happened to adventurers Glen and Bessie Hyde, who disappeared under mysterious circumstances in the Grand Canyon in 1928?
 
From the mystery of Apache Leap to the legend of the Lost Dutchman Mine, Mysteries and Legends of Arizona makes history fun and pulls back the curtain on some of the states most  fascinating and compelling stories. 

Synopsis:

Mysteries and Legends of Arizona explores unusual phenomena, strange events, and mysteries in Arizonas history. Each episode included in the book is a story unto itself, and the tone and style of the book is lively and easy to read for a general audience interested in Arizona history.
