Across America, from big cities to small towns and rural hamlets, there are many stories of challenges, historic events, courageous people, tragedy, and success. Some of the best and most exciting tales may not be well known. Such is the case for the towns of Clifton and Morenci, Arizona. They survived labor strikes, rising and falling copper prices, devastating floods, outlaws and lawlessness, gambling houses, and saloons. All this added to the lore that these towns were some of the roughest communities in the West. Today, after 143 years of mining, Freeport-McMoRan's Morenci copper mine is the largest in North America. Expansion has required new homes in Clifton-Morenci, a modern library, and recreational facilities. Residents are proud of their communities.
Southeastern Arizona has one of the most diverse mining localities in the state. Towns such as Bisbee, Clifton, Globe, Miami, Ray, Silverbell, and Superior have earned reputations as premier metal producers that are most notably known for their copper. Other mining towns that have made their marks in the region include Dos Cabezas, Gleeson, Harshaw District, Helvetia, Patagonia District, Pearce, Ruby, and Tombstone. Mining in southeastern Arizona has significantly influenced the development of mines in northern Sonora, Mexico. The foundation of Mexico's largest copper mine in Cananea was financed by American capital, specifically under the direction of miners and investors from southeastern Arizona. Overall, the process of mining has established the economy of southeastern Arizona, making it a viable source of copper-related minerals in the 21st century's global market.
In 1904, New York nuns brought forty Irish orphans to a remote Arizona mining camp, to be placed with Catholic families. The Catholic families were Mexican, as was the majority of the population. Soon the town's Anglos, furious at this interracial transgression, formed a vigilante squad that kidnapped the children. This title tells this tale.
Seven-year-old Jeff Hillman loved to skateboard, make mischief, and fish. But everything changed the day he contracted a mysterious illness called Reye’s syndrome. In this insightful glimpse into the life of a young man who died and then returned to tell about it—who encountered angels and experienced dramatic healing—you can see that God is still a God of miracles. He not only sees us in our struggles; He meets us in them. Witness the power of faith as Jeff and his family choose to focus not on the hardship of the moment but on God’s ability to love them through it. Rejoice in the Lord with them as they learn that joy and peace come with believing that God is using all of life’s twists and turns to accomplish purposes far beyond our understanding. Jesus Christ can provide just what we need to live not as victims, but as victors. But will we, like Jeff Hillman, choose to trust in Him?
