      About this month's book (from the University of Arizona Press):

      Arizona's Arivaca Valley lies only a short distance from the Mexican border and is a rugged land in which to put down stakes. When Arizona Territory was America's last frontier, Anglo and Mexican settlers alike, who often displaced the Indian population that had lived there for centuries, homesteaded this area. Eva Antonia Wilbur-Cruce, an octogenarian who spent her girlhood in this beautiful, cruel country, now recollects this frontier way of life, which prevailed as recently as the beginning of the twentieth century, in vivid detail.Audience:
