Schlup and Paschen have compiled the most thorough reference guide on Arizona’s local history. Marking the centennial anniversary of the state’s entrance into the union, this book provides more than a century worth of information for researchers seeking knowledge about its rich history. The book traces the history of Arizona from the Wild West until the present day.
This book is a one-volume reference work timed to coincide with the centennial observation of Arizona’s statehood in 2012.
