Discover Arizona Returns to
Sun Valley Lodge

 Sun City, Arizona – Wednesday,
February 18, 2015 –
Sun Valley Lodge will present the first in its four-part
Discover Arizona series on Thursday, March 5th at 10:30 AM.  The first program is entitled “Telling It Like It Was: Interviews with Arizona Pioneer Women
and will be presented by guest speaker Dr. Barbara Marriott, Ph.D.

During the Depression, the Federal Writers Project conducted
interviews with over 144 women who arrived in the Arizona Territory between
1850 and 1890.  The women spoke of their
long and dangerous journeys and with their words painted pictures of the
hardships and life-threatening situations of their frontier existence.  Through hard work, dedication, tenacity, and
humor, they conquered and helped make a state. In their own words, hear
Arizona’s original pioneer women’s stories, including those of the Udalls,
Flakes, Kartchners, and Romeros.

From fashion copywriter to management consultant, from
newspaper editor to university professor, Barbara Marriott’s insatiable
curiosity has taken her down many paths. Now her hunt for Western history has
added another twist of excitement to her life. Marriott uses her Ph.D. in
cultural anthropology as a tool for understanding the Old West and its fascinating
characters. After nine books about the Southwest’s pioneers and legends (with
many of the books award winning), she is on the trail searching for the next
bit of unknown and unique history.

The Discover Arizona series consists of four programs that each feature
a different aspect of Arizona history presented by an accomplished
speaker.  Programs are scheduled for
every Thursday in March at 10:30 AM.  The
series is made possible through a grant from the Arizona Humanities Council. 

All of the programs are free and
open to the public.  Sun Valley Lodge is
located at 12415 N. 103rd Avenue in Sun City.  For more details please call 623-933-0137.
