About this Item

University of California Press, Berkely/Los Angeles, 1986, first edition, 8vo., brown cloth w/gilt, pict. dustjacket, 664pp., illus., index. Here is the whole story of Death Valley, where that bitter stream the Amargosa dies at the foot of the Funeral Range. The story spans a century of records and recollections, up to the day in 1933 when much of the valley was finally set aside as a national monument, and it brings to life all the people attracted to the valley by their dreams and delusions. Here are not just the forty-niners, the 20-mule teams and Scotty, along with the whole crowd of Indians and horse thieves, lost argonaut and lost mine hunters, prospectors and promoters, miners and millionaires, stockholders and stock sharps, homesteaders and hermits, writers and tourists. VG+. Bookseller Inventory # 000007
