Jerome, Arizona was called "the wickedest city in America" by the New York Sun. It was, in fact, one of the wildest of the Wild West boom towns. The "official" history of Jerome has been well documented in many other books. However, there is a hidden, little spoken of history that is not a part of the "official" canon. "Jerome Times" offers that version - with a story for every decade of the town's history. In "Jerome Times" you will encounter the stories known only to the oldtimers, outlaws, and outcasts whose versions of things don't fit into the "approved" timeline. In this book you will meet people as diverse as Wyatt Earp and Don Juan Matus, as different as the Shooter from the Grassy Knoll and Robert Oppenheimer, as groundbreaking as Zelda Fitzgerald and Elvis. These are stories that have been told and retold among locals throughout the town's life. Some call them legends, some call them myths, some swear they are god's honest truth. You will have to be the judge.
