The Borax Man of Death Valley

Post by Gowergulch42 » Fri Jan 23, 2015 6:23 pm

I was going back through some of my older pictures from a few years ago, when I found pictures of a few pages from a self-published book "Chronicles of the Mojave Desert" by JD Gepenre. The tale tells of the Borax Man, a chinaman who became horrifically disfigured in an accident at the Harmony Borax works. I transcribed the story in the link. Has anyone else heard of this? What are your thoughts on it?

I can't see anything after the sentence: "There were two legends in this chapter, one regaurding the Garibaldi Mine, a legend I had see in other works, and the other read as the following:"

I am able to view the link: "Death Valley Petroglyphs #1"
