Publisher's Summary

Death in the desert under a relentless sun. This is an eyewitness account of wagon train pioneer families in 1849, who faced the horrifying heat of what is now known as Death Valley, California and survived the ordeal through an act of incredible heroism.

It is also a first person account, never before recorded as an audio book, of working the California gold fields, crossing through the Panama jungle and witnessing the horror of slavery in America. It is a unique document of history and adventure. William Lewis Manly lived through these events and wrote a personal account, so that they would never be forgotten.

A wonderful story very well told

We listened to this story while visiting Death Valley for the first time.
Very interesting and entertaining. The narrative of Andre Stojka was wonderful I could listen to him read a math book!
