"A compact yet well-researched history by noted UNLV history professor Rothman and Pomona College environmental professor Miller. . . . Death Valley needs all the friends it can get, and Rothman and Miller are good ones. It’s enough to make me want to gas up the Subaru and make a trip to Panamint Springs. I’ll add their book to my shovel and spare tire because it’s also a useful tool. Death Valley National Park is destined to become dog-eared and re-read, the fine dust of the mystical desert place itself sprinkling its pages."
