ABOUT THE BOOK
And We Danced: More Oral Histories from Yavapai County, Arizona
picks up where Mona McCroskey's Chasing Cattle and the Cure
off in 2012. This volume contains World War II experiences and a
few "guest authors." Included are Robson's Mining World, the
History of Mining in the Bagdad area, Jerome History, and Senator
Boyd Tenney's remarkable legislative career. These appealing from-
the-heart accounts will make you smile and perhaps long for the
simpler days in Yavapai County in the first half of the 20th century.
