The Road to Paradise Valley — The People, Places, and Events that Shaped the Region
Author John Augustine's research into the history of Paradise Valley, the region west of the McDowell Mountains and encompassing the northern parts of Scottsdale and Phoenix, has brought together the fascinating stories told in this book. We now have a record of who was here in the beginning, before the residential communities and shopping malls were constructed.
Homesteads, mines, farms, and ranches spread out over the 250 square miles, between the remote towns of Curry's Corner, Paradise City, and Cactus. And for Hollywood celebrities, politicians, famous architects, and a few memorable locals, Paradise Valley provided a good retreat for many and gave others a chance to establish their businesses. Hear their stories in this wonderful book.
