Story of the American West
-- Legends of Arizona
By Carol Sletten and Eric Kramer
Illustrated by Carol Sletten

The book tells the story of America's 48th state through the lives of Apaches, Mountain Men, Hispanics, Soldiers, Mormons, Cowboys, Blacks, Outlaws and Others Who Struggled in Arizona's White Mountains, One of the Last Untamed Regions of the West.

The book weaves the essential elements of the mythic West into a highly readable story. This non-fiction version of Michener's Centennial is comparable to the novel in poignant detail and narative scope.
