Singing Wind Bookstore, Benson, Arizona

d2c66ec1-ec6d-43a8-a666-cf44e8c9a394-1020x765Winifred Bundy has been selling books here for 40 years. It’s a little tricky to find, situated on a working cattle farm four miles from the nearest town. It doesn’t have a website, Twitter, Facebook or email address. “It doesn’t even have opening hours: you just have to turn up and hope for the best.”
