Very unique bookshop in location and appearance! We were sure our GPS was wrong after driving a 1/2 mile of dirt road. And there it was on a plot of land with a small parking lot and donkeys behind a wire fence! Good selection of...More

Nice Bookshop with lots of books on the west, Native Americans and lots of others. If you happen to meet Winn Bundy or Jim that would be a plus. Do a little research on where to find it. Not in the city but close by.

Singing Wind Bookstore is a treasure chest of wonderful books and is a quirky reminder of why Arizona is so interesting. The Bookstore is located on a ranch in the middle of nowhere. It is run by Winny who has drawn authors from around the...More

"Hidden gem," "unique," and "one of a kind" have already been used, and rightfully so. If you read for pleasure -- I know, I know, tell me more about the olden times, Grandpa -- and you're within 1,000 miles of southern Arizona, you should pay...More

This is a unique out of the way bookstore. Many one of a kind books on the southwest area. Winifred will give you a tour that she is very proud of. She has many other books also and children's books. A must visit.

After a long drive down a dirt road no book store in sight just an old ranch house. Well, the ranch house was the library. Greeted by a dog named Chester Einstein who was going to show around until along came Win the whirlwind. I...More

Unfortunately met the owner Winifred, she was incredibly rude to the point of absurdity never again will I grace those grounds, & I feel sorry for the others who feel obligated to show up there and put up with her attitude

For all of us who lament the passing of the privately owned bookstore, this one is a real treat to visit. Quirky, yes. From the lengthy tour by the elderly owner, to a classification system that is truly individual, this was an experience to savor.

This place had many books of interest and rare finds for reading. The owner was full of information regarding some questions I asked.
