Local History Books on Arizona

Desert life at its very best and most beautiful comes to life in Arizona, America’s 48th state. That’s because it is the only state where all four of North America’s deserts can be found: the Great Basin, Mojave, Chihuahuan, and the Sonoran deserts. In fact, some of the nation’s most majestic vistas and landmarks, including the world famous Grand Canyon National Park, can be found here. Arizona is also home to a variety of unique flora and fauna unequaled by few other regions in the U.S, due to its diversity of altitudes and climate.
