Images of America

Wickenburg: Images of America
By Lynn Downey and 
Desert Caballeros Western Museum

New from Arcadia Publishing, Lynn Downey, and the Desert Caballeros Western Museum, is Wickenburg: Images of America.
Once known as the Dude Ranch Capital of the World, Wickenburg, Arizona has had many lives since its founding by Henry Wickenburg in 1863, the year he discovered the famed Vulture Mine. Early residents and visitors included miners, ranchers, gunslingers and newspaper editors. Dude ranches blossomed in the 1930s and tourists today continue to be enchanted by Wickenburg's family-friendly and Wild West ambience.
Filled with nearly 200 photos from the Desert Caballeros Western Museum, private collectors, and local photographers, Wickenburg: Images of America brings to life a city which has deep roots in the story of the American West.
