arizona_the_making_of_a_state

Out of the West Comes a Different Kind of History Book. A panoply of the exciting stories and interesting people who lived big lives on a big frontier. Several years ago, Jo Baeza and Greg Tock became partners in a state-sanctioned Arizona Centennial Legacy Project. Baeza's 100 stories of territorial Arizona appeared in weekly installments in the newspaper until 2012. Baeza emphasizes that Arizona’s roots are not Colonial English but Spanish Colonial and American Indian. She traces the influence of European rivalries, Spanish colonization, Mexican Independence, the Mexican-American War, the discovery of gold and silver, conflicts between sheepmen and cattlemen, colonization by Latter-day Saints, Civil War engagements, the coming of the railroads, and the tragic, inevitable outcome of the Indian wars. Arizona’s Official State Historian Marshall Trimble writes in the Foreward to the book: “The Making of a State runs the wide gamut of Arizona’s colorful history from outlaws and lawmen to empire builders, movers and shakers. There are stories of lawmen such as the storied Commodore Perry Owens and Frank Wattron; renegades like the Apache Kid; the Indian Wars; rough and tumble pioneers like Jack Swilling; the Pleasant Valley War and rowdy boomtowns like Tombstone. There’s the arrival of the railroads; the Mormons in the Little Colorado River Valley; the Spanish Colonial and Mexican periods; prospectors and hard rock miners.”
