Movie Details

This homage to the state of Arizona is based upon some of the stories and photos published over the years in Arizona Highways, one of the state's most popular magazines. Host Don Collier introduces viewers to such people as Dr. Ken Jackson, who decided to ride across the state on horseback, and the talented and prolific photographer Jerry Jacka, whose contributions have enriched the magazine for years. During the segment on the San Pedro and Southwestern Railroad, passengers are taken on a trip along the San Pedro River that recalls the days of dangerous gunmen and the Old West. A number of other picturesque cities and regions of the state are visited, including the "paradise" present in Pleasant Valley, just north of the Phoenix area. ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi
