About this title


From Preface: This book is no means a complete history of the California deserts, but presents storied selections from a vast area of the Greater Mojave Desert. Our articles are written by published and unpublished authors, who included their folklore, humor and interwoven family life with visions of tomorrow, forming a 200 year human interst account of people being people. Like the painting of a desert landscape in various hues, these treasured tales give the coloring needed to bring the bicentennial legend to life.
