Catherine Ellis and D. L. Turner consider it a privilege to help preserve this area's history. Turner developed an early appreciation for the White Mountains during childhood vacations. Ellis's father photographed aspen and wildlife each fall, leaving a legacy of spectacular scenes and an abiding love of the mountains. Likewise, the photographs in this book come mostly from those who love the valleys and mountains of eastern Arizona.
The White Mountains of Apache Countyby Catherine H. Ellis, D.L. Turner

Towns and communities such as Springerville, Eagar, Alpine, Nutrioso, Vernon, Greer, McNary, and Maverick of Apache County's White Mountains hold fascinating histories of outlaws and Arizona Rangers; Texas cattlemen and Mormon farmers; and New Mexico Hispanics and forest service men. Aldo Leopold was one of the forest service men who, in A Sand County Almanac, described the Boneyard, Campbell Blue, and Frijole Cienega. Of Paradise Valley, he wrote, "What else could you call it?" In 1913, the Good Roads Association described the roads winding through the area with "canyons that are flanked on every side by timber-covered, snow-clad peaks." It also noted that the area had become "an interesting point for the genuine home seeker, who will not likely want to continue his journey farther." That description remains true today.
