This collection of nearly 100 stories about Arizona's colorful past will convince the reader that history need not be dull. These "Arizona Nuggets" are about fascinating people - their triumphs and tragedies, their sorrows and their joys. You'll find few dates or statistics or footnotes in these tales, but you will get a better idea of what life was like on the frontier and how some of today's most cherished institutions and traditions came to be. You will learn such facts as why the musical film "Oklahoma " was actually shot in Arizona, the unbelievable home remedies that our sick and wounded pioneers relied on, and why Zane Grey left Arizona in a snit, never to return. Read about the conflicts between the early settlers and Geronimo and why the Apache Chief Cochise was respected by many. These stories are written in an interesting style with a touch of humor that makes the history of the Southwest fun to readers of all ages. This Centennial edition, released to celebrate Arizona's 100th birthday, includes a new chapter on how Arizona became a state. The book's foreword was written by Marshall Trimble, Arizona's official state historian. Profits and royalties from the sale of this book benefit the Kiwanis Club of Friendship Village, Tempe, Arizona, USA.
