Rural Arizona in the 1920's offered a harsh environment to those who chose to call it home. Life on an impoverished Indian Reservation further deepened the challenge, but it also was the turning point in my family's life. Rich and lasting friendships were developed among the Indian people, the memories of which are lasting today.

This is a historical and pictorial review of the Government Agency located on the Pima Indian Reservation at Sacaton, Arizona, and a review of a number of prominent people who administered the Tribal affairs during the period between 1859-1968, after which the Tribe then became independent and se1f-governing. The book contains 105 pictures dating back into the late 1800s and into the late 1940s. Pima cotton, the worlds finest, was developed at Sacaton, and the history of this development is described. It is a wonderful and enlightening story of another time.
