Yuma Arizona Homesteading - Book Review

Guest Author - Debra Conrad

These were the magic words coaxing a determined group of "modern day" Southwest Arizona Homesteading pioneers to the Yuma Mesa in 1948 and 1952.



Armed with little more than their dreams, these stalwart families invested their blood, sweat and tears into transforming their 140 acres of sun baked Southwest Arizona sand into fertile farmland.
This fascinating collection preserves a snapshot of the lives of these little known Southwest Arizona homesteading heroes. In fact,it may surprise you to know many of the hardships they endured rival those of 19th century homesteaders.

Though many original homesteading stories are lost forever, this in-depth history is both a testament and a legacy to those who follow today, with its colorful patchwork of precious first-hand accounts.

Yuma_Mesa_Homesteaders Book

Spanning the events of "real life", from heartbreaking to humorous, the homesteading stories and photos gleaned from a gathering of Yuma Mesa Homestead survivors is a fascinating read.

Anyone who values the rich historical perspective of rural life will agree; don't let their history be forgotten. Between these covers is a timeless message for all of us.

From homesteader grandchildren, to rural life historians and genealogists...let the voices of the past speak to you today.



When you travel the Arizona Desert, you might travel through Yuma Arizona...take a look at all the changes that have taken place over the past 60 years. After reading through this historical refrence you can see what the old Yuma Mesa Arizona Homesteading Pioneers mean by ... "Sure has changed a bit around here"
