Photographic history of Arizona presented at La Posada

AHC Road Scholar and Historian Jim Turner leads a visual tour of Arizona history.

From the geological wonders of the Grand Canyon and Petrified Forest, to cutting-edge biotech industries and Native American art galleries, this whirlwind pictoral history tour of Arizona shows it all.

In addition to beautiful landscape photography and historic site images, this engaging program addresses Arizona’s cultural diversity, mining and the history of water use.

Before retiring fromthe Arizona Historical Society in their outreach position, Turner worked with more than seventy museums in every corner of the state, including Old Trails Museum in Winslow. He co-authored the fourth grade text book, The Arizona Story, and his new pictorial history book, Arizona: Celebration of the Grand Canyon State, contains more than 530 images of the state.

Turner will be available for a book signing after the presentation.
