"The Mojave River runs in fits and starts across the desert northeast of the Los Angeles Basin until it sinks into the sands of Soda and Silver lakes near the town of Baker, California. Numerous early explorers traveled up the river, including Garces, Jedediah Smith, Fremont and others. E.I. Edwards, noted bibliographer of desert literature, called this work 'one of the desert's most distinguished books." - Clark & Brunet 208.
