The trails of Southwestern history makers join at Yuma Crossing, once the only 'safe' ford of the Colorado River, dividing Arizona from California. This is not a story of Yuma, Arizona, but of the tides of history which swept up to that site on the bank of the Colorado River for four centuries. Actually it is not one story at all but a weaving together, in chronological order, of the deeds of many men: Sea captains, soldiers, missionaries, Indians, babies, braggarts, Indian Scouts, murderers, captives, moneymakers, camel drivers, steamboat builders, and successful dreamers all are part of the color of Yuma Crossing, drawn here because this was the only southern gateway to California.
