Description

Rural Arizona in the 1920's offered a harsh environment to those who chose to call it home. Life on an impoverished Indian Reservation further deepened the challenge, but it also was the turning point in my family's life. Rich and lasting friendships were developed among the Indian people, the memories of which are lasting today. This is a historical and pictorial review of the Government Agency located on the Pima Indian Reservation at Sacaton, Arizona, and a review of a number of prominent people who administered the Tribal affairs during the period between 1859-1968, after which the Tribe then became independent and se1f-governing. The book contains 105 pictures dating back into the late 1800s and into the late 1940s. Pima cotton, the worlds finest, was developed at Sacaton, and the history of this development is described. It is a wonderful and enlightening story of another time.

Author Biography

Bob Ramsey arrived in Arizona as a small child in 1926, and was raised among the Indians, where his father taught school on the remote Pima Indian Reservation. He later served with the Navy Seabees for three years during WWII, before settling down to a 45-year career in the lumber business. Since his retirement, he has found pleasure in writing. This is his sixth book to be published. He was awarded the distinction of having written the best historical presentation to be published by the Arizona Historical Society during the year 2002. Those stories are incorporated in this writing.
