Reminiscences (2v)

Description

Economic geologist and speculator Pumpelly (1837-1923) was a nineteenth-century globe-trotter who took a liking to Arizona. In 1860, he came to investigate the fledgling mines south of Tucson, where he befriended pioneers such as Charles Poston, battled Apaches, dealt with bandits, and fled the country by riding to Yuma with a pistol at the ready. He was smitten by the landscape, especially the Santa Rita Mountains, writing “The scenery of Arizona . . . is unique and might belong to another planet. No other part of the world is so strongly impressed on my memory as this region.”
--Bill Broyles.
