The desert and mountain ranges of southeastern Arizona are linked to some pivotal historical events: Coronado's search for the fabled wealth of Cibola; the raids by Chiricahua Indians led by Cochise and Geronimo; the seemingly endless cycle of mining booms and busts that resulted in fortunes made and lost; and border clashes during the Mexican Revolution. All these events are told with careful attention to fresh details. In addition, this volume offers a history of the upland region centered on control and use of the land, including chapters on mining, logging, ranching, farming, and tourism.
