Oro Valley


Tucson - Arizona - US


TUCSON, Ariz. - July 21, 2014 - PRLog -- Running west to east along the northern boundary of Tucson is a corridor of unique and inspiring communities. In Legendary Locals of Marana, Oro Valley, and Catalina, readers will discover the historical riches, courage and determination of the Western spirit that shaped the state and the country.

George Pusch was a member of the Arizona Territorial Legislature that guided Arizona from territory to statehood. Sam Chu, a Chinese immigrant, turned barren land into one of the most productive cotton farms in America. Sheriff John Nelson helped establish Arizona’s reputation as cattle country. Under the guidance of Dick Eggerding, the public arts program made Oro Valley one of the best small towns in America.

America’s talented athletes have called the corridor home including Hank Leiber, 1930s baseball star; Maren Seidler, Olympic shot-putter; and Sherry Cervi, barrel racing champion. In these communities, charity work, artistic talent and military courage are found in abundance. If people make history, then the corridor is a treasure trove of the country’s past and future.
