MEET THE STORYTELLER
Jim Turner

I was the eighth generation to live in our Connecticut farmhouse but our whole family moved to Tucson in 1951 because of my asthma. I earned my masters in U.S. History from the University of Arizona, retired from the Arizona Historical Society in 2009, became an author/editor for Rio Nuevo Publishers until 2020, have authored or co-authored nine books, mostly about Arizona.

You can read history stories on my website, www.jimturnerhistorian.org. Or email me at [email protected]. You can also purchase my books at Rio Nuevo Publishers, rionuevo.com/shop
