Show Low, Arizona (Images of America Series) by Jani Huso, Catherine H. Ellis

In true Old West fashion, Corydon Cooley and Marion Clark decided ownership of their ranch in the White Mountains with a game of "seven-up." Cooley turned over the winning low card, and the name, Show Low, became history. Today the main street is the "Deuce of Clubs," and visitors learn the town was "Named by the Turn of a Card." Mormon settlers and Apaches, sawmills and logging, hunting and fishing, and rodeos and ranching all add to the history of this tiny community. When Highway 60 was completed through Salt River Canyon in the 1930s, adequate access from Phoenix and the nation was finally available. At an elevation of 6,500 feet, there is usually a slight wind moving through the ponderosa pines, and Show Low stands ready to welcome visitors.

About the Author

Jani Huso and Catherine H. Ellis are Arizonans whose families have lived in Navajo County since 1880. Bill and Irene Huso sold Hallmark cards, Shell gas, Levi's, Tony Lama boots, sportsmen supplies, chainsaws, and Maytag appliances at the Show Low Supply and Huso Shoes; Louise Hunt taught fourth grade in Show Low for 20 years. Using generously shared images from the Show Low Historical Society and from descendants of early pioneers, an engaging portrait emerges of this "White Mountains Crossroads."
