Album of Stunning Photographs of People and Places in Arizona by Chuck Abbott, Esther Henderson, and other Arizona Highways Photographers, ca. 1938-1950
1942.

The remainder are credited to Barry Goldwater (two photos of Navajo women), Norman G. Wallace, Joseph Miller, and Jack Breed (all of whom contributed to Arizona Highways), as well as Grace M. Sparkes (a prominent Prescott, AZ photographer), John Stryker (renowned as an early rodeo photographer), and a few other professional photographers. The subject matter can be divided into three main themes: Landscape (Aravaipa Canyon, Pajarito Mountains, Superstition Mountains, Kaibab Plateau, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Oak Creek Canyon, Moenkopi Wash, Petrified Forest, Painted Desert, Canyon of the Little Colorado, and others); Ranching and Rodeo (Identified ranches and ranchers, including Red Myrick of Rancho Grande, Nogales; H.H.
