A Dozen Mind-Boggling Tales from the Grand Canyon State
 
• Pima Indian Ira Hayes made for a most reluctant war hero after helping raise the flag at Iwo Jima. Did post-traumatic stress disorder figure in his early death?
 
• Legend has it that the ghosts of Abby, an abandoned wife, and Noble, her cat, have haunted Prescott’s Hotel Vendome for more than eighty years. But did they ever exist to begin with?

• What really happened to adventurers Glen and Bessie Hyde, who disappeared under mysterious circumstances in the Grand Canyon in 1928?
 
From the mystery of Apache Leap to the legend of the Lost Dutchman Mine, Mysteries and Legends of Arizona makes history fun and pulls back the curtain on some of the state’s most  fascinating and compelling stories.

    A look back in time... great stories for an afternoon

    I felt I was sitting camp side, at a bar, and in a dive restaurant hearing these stories. It is an interesting mix of truth backed up by research and hearsay. It made me want to visit Quartzsite, find the ghosts in Prescott, and search for gold in the Superstitions. I am a native of Arizona but haven't had that small town feel in awhile. There is a lot of culture and caution that goes with these stories. And most importantly it reminded me to tread lightly while dealing with Apaches. They have a lot of history that caused them a great deal of trouble leading to unexplained results. If you want a story to tell while hanging out in the small towns of Arizona this is a great place to start.
