Kip's Desert Book Club
The White Heart of Mojave - Edna Brush Perkins

582

Let's travel out to Bob Tellefson's house in Wonder Valley and discuss The White Heart of Mojave by Edna Brush Perkins. A well crafted adventure tale of a trip to Death Valley by two east coast socialites in 1920. The afterward is almost as long as the book–illustrated, and well worth reading. Mr. Wild did some serious research to add depth to the many desert characters Edna encountered along her way.

To get to Bob's house, take Hwy 62 east from 29 Palms for about 8 miles and turn left on Shelton Road (it's just past where the highway makes a big zig zag). Drive north about 1.5 miles, and turn right on El Paseo. Bob is the last and only house on the right. If the weather is nice, he says we can play ping pong!
