Mid Hills Campground Professional Review and Guide
"The East Mojave isn’t half as wild and woolly today as it was in 1826 when Jedediah Smith came through with a pack of angry Mojave Native Americans on his trail. Ambushed crossing the Colorado River, Smith lost half his trading party to Mojave war clubs before he forted up in a thicket of cottonwoods. With only five Kentucky rifles, Smith and his mountain men discouraged the Mojaves enough with pinpoint rifle fire to escape and run for their lives across the East Mojave Desert."
--Jane & Hans Huber with Bill Mai, The Best In Tent Camping: Southern California (Menasha Ridge Press).
