The Dargate Book
I had a lovely time in Arizonia--it was warm and sunny, unlike Montana!
Last Sunday I was at Zoe's Trunk in Chandler, AZ doing my Peek at the Past lecture. I brought the Dargate book with me and everyone got to see all the samples on all the pages. I am including some scans of those pages for those of you who were not there.
The shuttle driver was telling me about the 4 C's that have historically been the economic drivers of the Phoenix area--Citrus, Cotton, Cattle and ? I have forgotten the 4th. Does anyone know? All of these are now trumped by the most important C of all--Climate.
