The Spanish Influence in Arizona in The 1860's
This book entails over 100 years in the lives of four individual families; three of these families were from Mexico and the fourth family came from Spain. The trials and tribulations that they faced on their journey to their new land, the hardships and joys that they felt once they finally settled, and their children, and their children?s children are all mentioned. These settlers suffered everything from Indian attacks to premature deaths of their children due to wild animals, infections, and pneumonia. These families worked hard either on the ranches that they acquired through the Homestead Act or at the mines around the'signal area and succeeded in making good homes for their families. When it was time to celebrate, they really celebrated! Whiskey runners would sell them whiskey and the families would all get together and dance, sing, and participate in the original rodeos of the west. Once these families met and their children married they lived in peace and harmony with each other. It was one of the grandchildren that I first met who asked me to write their story. Through personal interviews and oral histories, I was able to put this book together.
