Loafing Along Death Valley Trails; A Personal Narrative Of People And Places

Gelesen von David Wales

(4,727 Sterne; 22 Bewertungen)

William Caruthers was a retired newspaperman who spent 25 years listening to stories told by the inhabitants of Death Valley. This 1951 book collects those stories; the printed version has many interesting pictures. ''Of the actors who made the history of the period, few remain. It was the writer’s good fortune that many of these men were his friends. It is the romance, the comedy, the often stark tragedy these men left along the trail which you will find in the pages that follow.'' (Preface and David Wales)

Many interesting tales of Indians, miners, travelers and more who spent time in Death Valley in the early 1900s. I loved the reader's voice, and it is well read.

An Excellent Narrative
