A Place like No Other, Presented by Its People
A bit to the south of Prescott lies an area filled with rugged terrain-and even more rugged individualists. Local celebrity Barb Myers has brought together a series of vignettes that are at times insightful, at times laugh-out-loud funny, but never boring. Not since Edward Abbey has the wildness of the Southwest in the mid-20th Century been captured so well.
From the history of old mining railroads to tales of local Cleator, Best of the Bradshaws intersperses genuine accounts with recipes, songs, and other little slices of Southwestern life. Accompanied by selected photography by Barb herself, a dip into these pages is almost as good as the beauty and fresh mountain air of the place itself, so beloved by its inhabitants.
If you’ve ever dreamed of watching a storm from an Arizona mountainside or a life far beyond where man has touched nature, these stories will reach your heart. All authentic, all firsthand, this collection truly represents the very Best of the Bradshaws.
