Claude Compton: Indian Trader, Fort Mojave, Arizona 1899-1904
Written by Jere Baker

Claude Compton, Indian Trader is a fascinating historical account of the activities and developments around the trading post at the Fort Mojave Indian School in Arizona Territory from 1899 to 1904. Compton headed west at the age of 23 to find his fortune, eventually becoming the Post Trader and Post Master. Rich in historical detail, the book contains over 70 early photographs and is illustrated with maps and drawings.  Free-lance writer and historian Jere Baker has written several works on early life in Arizona. Jere is a particular authority on this subject as Claude Compton is his grandfather.
