They Beat the Heat: How Arizonans Survived the Desert Heat in the Days Before Air Conditioning Imagine a time before the hum of air conditioners became an essential part of life in the desert. What have we forgotten about surviving summer heat? What can we learn from the wisdom of those who came before us, as climate becomes an ever more pressing issue? Join us as writer and historian Christine Reid draws from the multi-cultural influences of the people who built Arizona. Discover how creative adaptations in lifestyle, architecture, building materials, town planning, and even humor contributed to survival in intense desert temperatures.
