Posted by & filed under Book Reviews.

Take a virtual tour of Northern Arizona through a unique and colorful collection of vintage postcards depicted in local author Victoria Clark’s book, A Journey Through Northern Arizona. Over 300 postcards illustrate the fascinating history and beautiful scenery of the northern part of the state, going back in time from the 1900s to the 1950s.

Discover the history of those who have lived in Arizona for centuries—the Hopi, Navajo, Apache, Havasupai and Hualapai tribes. Learn about their dwellings, their customs and artistry. See the ruins of Montezuma’s Castle and Walnut Canyon built by the cliff dwellers.

The breath-taking scenery of northern Arizona is captured in postcards that take you to the Painted Desert, Petrified Forest, Monument Valley, Meteor Crater and Sedona. The Grand Canyon and its history can be seen in the pages of this book along with the famous Route 66 that brought travelers across the state through Kingman, Williams, Flagstaff, Holbrook and Winslow to and from California and the Midwest. The state is rich in history and beauty that unfold in the pages of A Journey Through Northern Arizona.

Victoria grew up in Tucson and now lives in Sedona with her husband, Mike. She is active in five local historical societies and the International Questers. She has written poetry and short stories about life in Tucson in the early 1950s and is the author of two other books, How Arizona Sold Its Sunshine: Historical Hotels of Arizona and A Journey Through Southern Arizona.

A Journey Through Northern Arizona by Victoria Clark, soft cover, color illustrated, index, 128 pages, $24.99 plus shipping, is available from Schiffer Publishing, www.schifferbooks.com.
