KIRKUS REVIEW

History and background book of Death Valley, the growth of its terrifying fame, the lure for explorers, the story of how borax became king and how it boomed and fell. Full of anecdotes, interviews, characterizations -- from 1849 to the present. Good material, some of it of debunking nature, enthusiastically presented. Should have double market for ""true Westerns"" plus travel readers.
