Reviewed by Lois J Wickstrom for Readers' Favorite

Little Miss History Travels to Tombstone Arizona by Barbara Ann Mojica, illustrated by Victor Ramon Mojica, is a charming history book full of trivia and characters, both famous and not-so-famous, but important nonetheless. From silver mines to gun battles, from general stores to gambling saloons, this book introduces the colorful beginnings of Tombstone Arizona and even explains how it got its unusual name. The author, Barbara Ann Mojica, got the name Miss History from her family because of her persistent habit of asking historical questions everywhere they went. Now she’s sharing her discoveries with eager readers. The book has a glossary of historical terms.

You don’t need a life-or-death crime, a robbery, or other stuff from which movies are made to be worthy of investigation. In Little Miss History Travels to Tombstone Arizona by Barbara Ann Mojica, folks who start businesses in the wild west, help their country folk, and pursue law and justice make their mark. Former slaves, new immigrants, outlaws, water pumps, destructive fires, a museum with Wyatt Earp’s shaving blade, and a rebuilt gallows all get their due attention. In addition to dancing halls, theaters, and newspapers, this book mentions activities tourists can indulge in today. Take a bumpy ride through town in a stagecoach. Visit a cemetery in which many of the folks who are buried there died with their boots on. This book is an enjoyable romp through a famous town with an unusual name. I look forward to further travels with Miss History.
