Cadillac Desert


Kip, of Kip's Desert Book Club sez,

Laurel and Frank have invited us back to the Glass Outhouse in Wonder Valley on the 4th of July to discuss the environmental classic, Cadillac Desert by Marc Reisner. This 30 year old book explores the important topic of water in southwestern North America and is perhaps more relevant today than the day it was published. Laurel says the Glass Outhouse is a great place to watch the fireworks on the base, so bring a folding chair and enjoy! 
Time to get your copy of the true crime book Twentynine Palms, by Deanne Stillman. Nancy is looking forward to hosting the August 1st meeting at her Copper Mountain Mesa cabin where we can discuss the changes in the city of 29 Palms over the last 15 years. 
To get to the Glass Outhouse, drive 4 miles east of 29 Palms on Hwy. 62 and turn right on Thunder Road, where you will see the Book Club and gallery sign. The water tank painted to look like a giant Pepsi can is a good landmark to watch for too. If you pass the airport, turn around, you went too far.
