Arizona's Worst Disaster tells the story of the Walnut Grove Dam Break, an event that forever changed the Wickenburg Area, and the way Arizona handled future water projects. Jim's book tells the full story of the Walnut Grove Dam, from design to its tragic failure and beyond. The book is filled with references, excerpts of rare correspondence between the interested parties of the day, and a numerical workup on the hydrology surrounding the dam.
Those of you who may have visited our store have heard snippets of the Walnut Grove tale many times. This is the full story, unembellished and told from beginning to end. All of our copies have been signed by the author, too.
