Famous Sheriff John Slaughter's young daughter, Addie, bravely travels from Texas to the Arizona-Mexico border, settling on the 1800s Slaughter Ranch. Along the way, her mother dies; she narrowly escapes a stagecoach robbery and murder; an earthquake destroys the ranch; her father's earlobe is shot off; and she meets Geronimo.
In addition to true, but gross, humorous, interesting and wacky stories and facts, Arizona Way Out West & Wacky makes reading about Arizona's history fun through word searches, crossword puzzles, recipes, crafts and many other amusing activities.
While Arizona Way Out West & Wacky solicits children to write and color on its pages, Witty: Library Edition, has reconfigured activities and word games with no coloring pages, and it's formatted as a chapter book. It's ideal for libraries and schools, because its readers are entertained and educated, but not tempted to mark up the copy. Plus, it comes with a curriculum guide in the back of the book!
