Per the Zamorano 80 entry, the book "describes in highly dramatic fashion the adventures and misadventures of a California-bound emigrant party of 'forty-nine when they essayed a short-cut on the western trail from Salt Lake City, and became lost in Death Valley where they thirsted, starved, and a number died. Manly and a companion, John Rogers, were the heroes of the party. They escaped from the valley, reached San Fernando, and returned with food and relief for the suffering emigrants". William Lewis Manly (1820-1903), born in Vermont, as a young man was a fur trader in Wisconsin, Ohio and the Dakota territory. As with many others, he decided to join the California Gold Rush and joined a group heading west out of Salt Lake City. When the party was trapped in Death Valley, he and a companion heroically walked 250 miles on foot across the Mohave Desert to Rancho San Fernando, to procure food and horses to save the party. Due to this rescue, several features in Death Valley bear his name, including Lake Manly, the ancient dried lake in Death Valley.
