Overview

Arizona, the 48th state of the United States of America, is a land of diverse environments and unbelievable natural beauty. It is also a land where many cultures—each with its own food, architecture, music, and art—came together as part of the American story. With a selection of fine historic images from their best-selling book, Historic Photos of Arizona, Linda and Dick Buscher provide a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Arizona. Remembering Arizona highlights the unique history of this state as captured in over 100 images reproduced in vivid black-and-white. A photographic journey from the Wild West days of Arizona lore to the modern state Arizona was soon to become, the book showcases landscapes as varied as those of the Sonoran Desert and the state’s ponderosa pine forests. From images of frontier life and copper mining boomtowns, to turn-of-the-century Grand Canyon vistas, to Harvey Houses and Route 66, Remembering Arizona presents a fascinating view of a changing land and the people who called it home—a land to which many are still drawn to fulfill their dreams today.
