Overview

No one knows Arizona like we do. In a road-construction newsletter, we began chronicling Arizona 13 years after it became the 48th state on February 14, 1912. What a day that was: William Jennings Bryan, one of the great orators of the time, spoke for two hours at the Capitol; a 48-shot salute was halted with 10 to go because the booms spooked horses; Bisbee miners set off dynamite; Snowflake residents blew up an anvil; and people in Phoenix discharged firearms in the streets.

The original intent of Arizona Highways was simple: Tell the world Arizona had good roads and was building more. Then came photos, first black-and-white and then color images. By the 1940s, the magazine had established an international reputation for chronicling Arizona's scenic splendors.

We're still chronicling the Grand Canyon State. In this guide, we draw on history, culture, and lore to help you enjoy attractions ranging from the indescribable Grand Canyon in the north to the grasslands of Sonoita in the south; from the ponderosa pines and snows of Flagstaff to the paloverde trees and desert marigolds of Tucson; from the dramatic and stark Navajo and Hopi canyons, plateaus, and mesas to the lush desert of Saguaro National Park; from refuges protecting wildlife to mud and stone ruins of our earliest residents' housing.

With this book, we hope you'll come to know Arizona - and love it - as much as we do.
