“MOJAVE DESERT, THE LAST FRONTIER,” LECTURE IN TWENTYNINE PALMS FRIDAY NIGHT

A fascinating look back at the forces that brought the early Pioneers to our desert is being offered by the Twentynine Palms Historical Society. Reporter Taylor Thacker invites you to this Friday evening’s lecture…

In the 1890’s, historian Frederick Jackson Turner lamented that the frontier was gone, and with it the Old West, but overlooked was some 50,000 square miles of a frontier outlining the Mojave Desert: America’s Last Frontier. Award-winning documentary filmmaker and author, Nicholas Clapp has studied, filmed, and written about the deserts of the world. It was while researching for his book that Clapp discovered the many rare photographs of America’s Last Frontier. Clapp will present his findings and have his book, Gold and Silver in the Mojave: Images of the Last Frontier, on sale at this Old Schoolhouse Lecture on January 10 at 7:00 p.m. at the Old Schoolhouse Museum. There will also be an optional dinner with the speaker at 5:00 p.m. at the 29 Palms Inn. Space is limited so sign up now. For more information call 760-361-1202.
