With the "Images of America" series, Arcadia Publishing does a great job giving readers a pictorial look back in time to celebrate the history of neighborhoods, towns and cities in the United States.

For the series on Pima County, photographic archives were pulled from the Arizona Historical Society. Jill McCleary of AHS, and Linda Mayro and Simon Herbert of Pima County each worked on the book. (128 pages, $21.99)
