Meet the Author

Often referred to as "the Will Rogers of Arizona," Marshall Trimble grew up in the small cattle-shipping and railroad community of Ash Fork, Arizona. Attributing the homespun humor of his stories and books to his small-town roots, Trimble has authored more than a dozen books, and his stories and cowboy poems have appeared in such magazines as Arizona Highways, Western Horseman, and The American Cowboy.

    Everyone who loves AZ should read....

    This book is used as the textbook for Marshall's class at Scottsdale Community College. Even the second time I read it, I learned something new as it is a wealth of AZ history and a must-read for everyone who loves this beautiful state.

    An Arizona Treasure!

    Marshall Trimble doesn't just write Arizona history ... he is it! His books are a pleasure to read, full of amazing facts and stories. Definately NOT boring. The only thing more interesting than his books, is hearing him in person! He teaches AZ history at SCC. He is amazing. No one knows more about Arizona, and teaches it so well.
