Title

Mormon Settlement in Arizona: A Record of Peaceful Conquest of the Desert

Description

State historian (1919-1928) and the author of the three-volume Arizona: The Youngest State (1916), McClintock performed a rare and enduring service with the publication of this detailed and well-written history of the important contributions of Mormon pioneers in the settlement and agricultural development of Arizona. Writing barely thirty years after Mormons were persecuted and disenfranchised, McClintock presents a balanced, even admiring, chronicle of thrifty, hard-working men and women who carved prosperous farms and communities out of the harsh desert landscape. Bruce J. Dinges.
