**With the polished style that characterizes all his works, Dr. Lawrence Clark Powell portrays Arizona in a way that will enthrall readers in any state, concluding with recognition that, like the ancient Indians and Spaniards, "We too hold the land in brief tenancy." **

"O yes," said Senator Wade of Ohio, "I have heard of that country--it is just like hell." 

 Such was the reaction to Arizona Territory of the nineteenth-century politicians who opposed making it a state and forced it to wait for statehood almost half a century. Now an opposite idea--Arizona as paradise--attracts tourists and the retired by the thousands. Cliches about a land of cowboys and Indians have yielded to visions of swimming pools, golf courses, and desert sunsets. Author Lawrence Clark Powell probes deeper to a nobler Arizona of dramatic history and human achievement.
