Description

Arizona has gone wild—over immigration, guns, healthcare, the Tea Party, and vigilantism. Award-winning author and Arizona local Jeff Biggers reports on what’s troubling our 48th state, and how a radicalized Arizona has become a national bellwether.




About the Author
<div>The Sierra Madre--no other mountain range in the world possesses such a ring of intrigue. <i>In the Sierra Madre</i> is a groundbreaking and extraordinary memoir that chronicles the astonishing history of one of the most famous, yet unknown, regions in the world. Based on his one-year sojourn among the Raramuri/Tarahumara, award-winning journalist Jeff Biggers offers a rare look into the ways of the most resilient indigenous culture in the Americas, the exploits of Mexican mountaineers, and the fascinating parade of argonauts and accidental travelers that has journeyed into the Sierra Madre over centuries. From African explorers, Bohemian friars, Confederate and Irish war deserters, French poets, Boer and Russian commandos, Apache and Mennonite communities, bewildered archaeologists, addled writers, and legendary characters including Antonin Artaud, B. Traven, Sergei Eisenstein, George Patton, Geronimo, and Pancho Villa, Biggers uncovers the remarkable treasures of the Sierra Madre.</div>
