I have his 1980's edition which I like a lot as I Iove Arizona history. Marshall Trimble is a tremendous historian. This edition (2004 I believe) is newer, has a more old time photos, and has more pages. I hope Marshall Trimble has or will have a third edition since 2004 is now a decade ago.

Great format: as you're traveling Arizona, you can look up the history of the area you're visiting/passing through.

This is a great resource for anyone interested or curious about America's youngest state in the lower forty eight. As a new tour guide in Arizona, it has been a valuable resource of facts and fascinating stories. Well written with interesting, historic photos. Recommended!

This book is such a fun easy read. I bought it to learn more about Az with my daughter before she left on an Az road trip with my parents. We learned a ton and found our whole family wanting to read it.

This book was a Christmas gift to my father in Arizona. He found lots of interesting info in this book that he has not come across elsewhere. He was very happy to receive it because he can now share more historical information with members of his historical landmark club. I was reading the book before I sent it to Dad and I really enjoyed it.
You will find something of interest in this book for just about any road trip you might go on. We like to read it even if we're not going on a trip.
