9780874176773: The Civilian Conservation Corps In Arizona's Rim Country: Working In The Woods (Wilbur S. Shepperson Series in Nevada History)

Part of the massive relief effort of Roosevelt's New Deal, the ccc was created in 1933 to give young men an opportunity to work and make money to help families devastated by the Great Depression, and to participate in forest and conservation projects across the country. In Arizona, thousands of young men, many of them from the industrial Northeast, served in the state's ccc forest camps. Arizona's Mogollon Rim is a spectacular expanse of cliffs that slices through half the state, stretching from Sedona eastward to New Mexico. Along with the White Mountains, it includes the largest contiguous forest of ponderosa pine in America. Remote and little-visited in the 1930s, the Rim Country offered copious outlets for the ccc men's energies: building roads, public campsites, hiking trails, fire lookout towers, and administration buildings; fighting fires; controlling erosion; eliminating vermin; and restoring damaged soils.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"I can truly say that the CCC was the best time in my life. Without hesitation, the CCC turned this country around and built its superstructure back to ‘Grade A.’ For the men, it meant life or death to thousands, in fact millions, of men who were just existing at the time, rather than fully living."

Book Description University of Nevada Press, United States, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Part of the massive relief effort of Roosevelt s New Deal, the ccc was created in 1933 to give young men an opportunity to work and make money to help families devastated by the Great Depression, and to participate in forest and conservation projects across the country. In Arizona, thousands of young men, many of them from the industrial Northeast, served in the state s ccc forest camps. Arizona s Mogollon Rim is a spectacular expanse of cliffs that slices through half the state, stretching from Sedona eastward to New Mexico. Along with the White Mountains, it includes the largest contiguous forest of ponderosa pine in America. Remote and little-visited in the 1930s, the Rim Country offered copious outlets for the ccc men s energies: building roads, public campsites, hiking trails, fire lookout towers, and administration buildings; fighting fires; controlling erosion; eliminating vermin; and restoring damaged soils. The ccc enrollees were also given an opportunity to continue interrupted educations, learn useful skills and self-discipline, participate in sports and other leisure activities, and meet local residents. Author Robert J. Moore interviewed a number of ccc veterans who served in the Rim Country, and their stories are part of this book. So too are photographs - many of them from veterans personal collections - of Rim Country camps and workers, and such emphemera as camp newspapers. This is an engrossing account of several thousand young men who came to Arizona to escape the misery of the Great Depression, whose work in the woods changed the state, and who in the process were themselves changed. Here is the human face of Arizona s ccc, the men s experiences, their work, and their lasting impact on the forests of the Rim Country. Bookseller Inventory # AAN9780874176773
