Mojave Road Guide – An adventure through time. Explore the route used by pioneers on their way to California. The Mojave Road lets your SUV act as a time machine, guiding you on a trail that stretches for 138 miles through country virtually unchanged since prehistoric times. The fourth edition of the book has a new larger size at 6.75″ X 9.5″, makes use of heavier paper, and is wire spiral bound. Front and back covers are printed in full color. The first part of the book has new features — an essay on the history of the Mojave Road followed by a section of portraiture — images of people who made history along the Mojave Road prior to 1880 — 24 portraits are reproduced. The “General Guidlines” section has been modified to reflect changes in management resulting from passage of the California Desert Protection Act. The narrative road log has been significantly revised, checked and rechecked, and reformatted to make it easier to use. The maps have been completely redone and special efforts have been made to simplify navigation between written narrative and the maps. The book is authored by Dennis Casebier with the help of many Friends of the Mojave Road. Chris Ervin is responsible for creation of the maps and layout of the portraiture section.
