Issued in 1911, revised and enlarged in 1924, “Cactus and Pine” was a “little book of Arizona verse” intended to “go deeper into the life and growth of Arizona than any mere history or mere literature,” according to Sharlot Hall, author. It became one of her most popular compendiums, and was prepared on the old typewriter on display at the Governor’s Mansion of the Museum.
