I'd like to mention a new book out on desert hiking and backpacking that Death Valley folks should find interesting:
"The Ultimate Desert Handbook. The first complete book on desert hiking, exploration, and survival, this in-depth guide presents the deserts of the world not as an alien environment to be overcome or endured, but as a fascinating opportunity for anyone eager to enjoy a different kind of out-door experience. The Ultimate Desert Handbook includes comprehensive descriptions of deserts worldwide, a complete survey of the North American deserts, their plants and wildlife; expert advice on desert hiking (dayhiking, backpacking, group, solo & night desert hiking), camping, equipment, mountain biking the desert, wildlife observation & photography. A Ragged Mountain Press Outdoors Paperback * 5 8 * 296 pages * 80 photos and illustrations ISBN: 007139303X."
