The Legacy of Sedona Schnebly Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Legacy of Sedona Schnebly

I don't know if it could be called a "road trip" exactly. Sedona Arabella Miller Schnebly (1877-1950) was the woman who Sedona, Arizona was named for. Her husband's brother was out West and asked the Schneblys to come to Arizona, which they first did in 1901. In those days, there were only about 5 or 6 families in the Oak Creek area. Sedona's husband, Carl, was a successful farmer who marketed his produce in Flagstaff, AZ. The Schneblys also had cows and other farm things, plus a large 11-room house they built that ended up being a place for folks to stay over though it wasn't originally intended as a hotel. Carl was the first postmaster of Sedona, and when the Postmaster General refused his first two picks of names because they were too long to fit on the cancellation stamp, he decided to call it "Sedona". The Schneblys left after their second (of what would be 6 children) died after being trampled in a horse accident, moved back to Missouri, moved to Colorado, moved to Phoenix, and eventually moved back to Sedona for good.
