It Happened in Arizona

Remarkable Events That Shaped History

Book Description

It Happened in Arizona features thirty-six episodes from Arizona's history—from the thirteenth-century creation of the Hohokam's 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. This revised edition includes two new chapters, a locator map, an updated design, and new/updated facts and figures.
