Title

Tucson: The Life and Times of an American City

Description

Beginning with his introduction to what he describes as a “perilous paradise,” Sonnichsen introduces in absorbing detail important characters and events, from prehistoric times to the present, and shows how they interacted with a hostile environment to forge a distinctive culture and lifestyle. Although significant books have been written about Arizona’s other major cities, Sonnichsen’s lively portrait best imparts the sense of a living, breathing community.
