About the Author:

John Randolph Spears (1850-1936), author of The Gold Diggings of Cape Horn: A Study of Life in Tierra del Fuego and Patagonia, served for fifteen years as a reporter for the New York Sun. Douglas Steeples is an emeritus professor of history at Mercer University.

Review:

"Not many accounts about late nineteenth-century Death Valley exist, so Illustrated Sketches is an important addition to a small body of literature. Spears's writing is lively, the vignettes personable and appealing, the scenery intriguing." -- Ann Ronald, University of Nevada, Reno
