An Illustrated History of Mayer, Arizona, traces the town’s role in the growth of ranching, mining and the railroad. There is common thread that runs through all of the people who put this town on the map.  They all have a true pioneering spirit, and the uncompromising landscape and lifestyle in which this type of person flourishes is called, even today, the western American Frontier.
