Notes:
    This book originally published in 1922 describes two friends on an adventure to explore the White Heart of the Mojave Desert. I've left most of the text intact which probably isn't acceptable by modern grammatical standards, but maintains the personal feel of the journal.

    With a few exceptions of original photos as noted, all photos and maps have been provided by me as I feel are appropriate to the text.

    To the left are the chapters within the book. They can be read sequentially starting with the first chapter, then page by page or page by page throughout the book, or by selecting a specific chapter.

    Links within the body of text of the journal open a new window. Navigational links and links in the side panel are direct.
