Summary
Joseph Pratt Allyn was appointed associated judge of the newly established Territory of Arizona in 1863 and immediately set out for the Great Southwest. As he crossed the continent with the territorial party, he began a brilliant series of letters to the Hartford Evening Press. This collection of his correspondence provides a fascinating picture of pioneer Arizona. Editor Nicholson's extensive annotations and the biography of Allyn supply important background information. Enhanced by his quiet humor and talent for recording significant details, Allyn's letters are rich in valuable primary source material. They offer a personal view of such well-known figures as King Woolsey, Captain Joseph Reddeford Walker, and Bishop John Lamy. They also furnish vivid descriptions of the major settlements and outposts, including the now partially submerged boom town of La Paz. The Arizona of Joseph Pratt Allyn is a colorful and revealing panorama of the early territorial years.
