Noted Eastern California historian and author Bob Powers died on September 11th. Although best known for his local expeditions in and around California's Kern River Valley, his last publication, "Desert Country", paid tribute to Manly and Rogers' heroic feats, and touched on Borax mining in Death Valley. His preservations of Early California history will spark imaginative thoughts in the minds of future generations. Thanks, Bob.
