"As detailed and factually researched as a book can possibly be. Author Joe McNeill has devoted his life to accurately documenting Sedona’s film legacy and this bountiful book is his gift to us."—film historian Boyd Magers, Western Clippings

“I have lived in Arizona for 55 years and studied our unique history for at least thirty of those years, AND I thought I knew a thing or two about the history of movies filmed in Arizona but Joe McNeill's new book knocked me right on my butt. I had no idea how much of our film history has been mangled and flat out forgotten (and, I'll bet you will agree). This is really a treasure chest of invaluable information for anyone who cares about a critical period in Arizona's long film history.”—Bob Boze Bell, Executive Editor, True West magazine

“The book looks marvelous and the information is remarkable.”–– Kevin Brownlow, film historian and author, The Parade’s Gone By and Hollywood: The Pioneers

“Incredible!” ––Rhonda Fleming, actress, Out of the Past and Spellbound

Author Joe McNeill has preserved the relatively unknown film history of Sedona with his exhaustive and comprehensive book, Arizona’s Little Hollywood. We are treated to an array of fascinating black-and-white photographs along with many here-to-for unknown stories and facts in a decade by decade narrative. Movie aficionados and scholars alike need look no further when researching the film history of Sedona.––Marshall Trimble, Official Arizona State Historian
