This systematic study of the geography of Arizona emphasizes the relationship between the human population and the environment-the patterns of human activities and their effects on the landscape. Dr. Comeaux introduces Arizona's physical features, then traces its history from the time of the early Indians. A discussion of the state's contemporary population and the rapid growth of its cities is followed by a geographic approach to a number of key topics: Arizona's industries-manufacturing, mining, agriculture, lumber, ranching, and tourism-water and land use, and recreation.
