Arizona is unique among American states in its geography, geology, the diversity of its climate, its indigenous animal and plant life, and in the history of its first inhabitants—communities of Indians whose ancestors arrived on the scene more than 20,000 years ago.
AMAZING ARIZONA is a fascinating collection of stories about the Indians, Spanish Conquistadors, Mexican settlers and finally the Americans who laid the foundation for what Arizona is today, along with descriptions of the state’s most outstanding attractions.
The book is great back-ground reading for residents and visitors alike, an ideal gift for anyone, and a great promotional tool for the tourism industry.
There are no words that adequately describe the ambiance of Arizona. Its beauty encompasses all that nature has accomplished in over four billion years of time. Its geography, its climate, its animal and plant life--all are unique.
