Hits : 0
Shirley Pinkerton will re-enact the life of Larcena Pennington Page Scott who is most remembered for being kidnapped by Apaches. In March 1860, 23-year-old Larcena was abducted by Apaches from a lumber camp in the Santa Rita Mountains, stripped, beaten, thrown into a ravine, and left for dead. Unconscious for three days, she crawled back to camp through the snowy wilderness with no food for 16 days. One of Arizona's greatest pioneers, Larcena lived to see Arizona's statehood and died in 1913. Pinkerton is president of the Arizona Historical Society's Docent Council - Southern Division.
