Arizona's Pioneer Women
In 1876 a group of pioneer women and their families came from the north, ferried their covered wagons across the Colorado River. With indomitable bravery and strength they helped make the desert blossom into a green oasis. Their descendents pioneered in many settlements throughout Arizona. They displayed great courage and self-denial which is the rich heritage of their posterity.
