Title

Going Back to Bisbee

Description

Shelton is a wordsmith and his wordsmithery, if you will, is constantly on display. We know he made this drive many times, but what he presents to us is a single trip brimming with event after event, image after image, and idea after idea. The narrative eventually reaches Bisbee, but this is a book as much about getting there as being there. Shelton gives us important pieces of background that set historic Bisbee in its time and place as a booming copper mining operation, but he never loses sight of how it got there and, perhaps more importantly, what happened after.
