From the thirteenth-century creation of the Hohokam’s irrigation canals to the incredible building of the Hoover Dam in the twentieth century, It Happened in Arizona takes you on a behind-the-scenes tour of thirty-six compelling episodes from the vibrant history of the Grand Canyon State.
Join the dozen Spanish conquistadors who happened upon the Grand Canyon in 1540, but didn’t manage to get too far down. Learn the true stories of the Gunfight at the OK Corral, the valor of the Buffalo soldiers, and the inglorious death of Geronimo. Recall the largest and most destructive conflagration in Arizona’s history, the Rodeo-Chediski Fire of 2002.
