Zane Grey and Arizona's Tribes


Many of Zane Grey's novels were written about people and places in Arizona.  Several of the stories featured Native American people, often living on reservations located in the state. This exhibit shares the connection between these Native people and seven of Grey's great Western works. 

Zane Grey's West Society acknowledge several sources for the images shown in this exhibit.  Of special note is the work of Edward S. Curtis at the turn of the 20th century.  Additional information on Curtis is available here.
