CHANDLER, Ariz. - Feb. 12, 2019 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Historic Tales from Ahwatukee Foothills

Local author Martin W. Gibson will be available to sign copies of book


Phoenix's Ahwatukee Foothills grew from open desert to a community of nearly ninety thousand in just a few decades. From the first homesteaders and farmers to the modern visionaries and trailblazers who established homes and businesses, it is a very compelling story.

Discover the mystery of the Lost Ranch, the reason for Elliot Road's misspelling, the battle over annexation and the origins of the Easter Parade.

Local historian Marty Gibson recounts the challenges, struggles and successes in this collection of tales from the other side of the hill.

About the Author:

Marty Gibson grew up on Long Island and graduated from the New York Institute of Technology. He is a stained-glass artist, accomplished photographer and avid hiker and has won numerous competitive public speaking awards. His passion for local history was sparked by the lack of historical resources in the village profiled in this book. A thirty-year Arizona resident, Gibson makes his home in the former Kyrene farming community.
