Arizona: A Short History
University of Oklahoma Press, 1970 - 267 páginas
"This is more than an Old West book. For it moves into the 20th century and right up to today with a challenging hopeful look at Arizona's future. It is everything a narrative should be, with color, flavor, historical integrity and a panoramic continuity." Arizona Republic "A concise review of Arizona's past, present, and potential . . . does Arizona proud." Arizona and the West "A usable short history . . . clear and useful maps . . . written in a highly readable prose style . . . an enjoyable introduction to a fascinating subject." Western Historical Quarterly From the time of the Spanish quest for the legendary Seven Cities of Cibola to the evolution of the twentieth-century state, the story of Arizona has been vigorous and exciting. Odie B. Faulk's introduction to this varied, harsh, and beautiful land provides a summary, a synthesis of the four hundred years of the state's past, a look at the present, and an overview of its potential. The newcomer, the winter visitor, the tourist, and the student will find it a ready source of information, while native Arizonans will discover in it new reasons for loving their state. Odie B. Faulk, historian, author, and educator, has chaired the History Department at Oklahoma State University and been Professor of History at Northeastern Oklahoma State University. He is the author of more than fifty books, two of which were nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
