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. Historic Photos of Arizona highlights the unique history of this state as captured in nearly 200 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, this 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, Historic Photos of 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.

    Reliving History

    In this beautiful tribute to the state of Arizona, Linda and Dick Buscher have succinctly captured the rich history, culture, and sense of adventure that still exists in the nation's 48th state.

    CAPTURING AN ARIZONA FOR ALL TO ENJOY

    This coffee table and reference book combines and captures a photographic and narrative history of Arizona at its finest. It is clear and concise, with text that is filled with important state information, lively quotations and little-known facts written in the much loved Buscher-team style.

    Having this book to "walk through Arizona's history" will both entertain and captivate the reader to appreciate the intrigue and the beauty that has been and remains Arizona.

    A great book for Arizona lovers as well as fans of photograpy

    This is a book well done. Dick and Linda have created a beautiful and concise visual history of Arizona. Being a native Arizonan and a lover of photography, I truly enjoy this book. I bought a second copy to give as a gift to my friends from England to show them that even though our state may have a short history, it is one that is rich, varied and extremely interesting.
