Wylder Hotel Eastern Sierra History series continues

Starting at 3 p.m. this Saturday, April 16, Wylder Hotel Hope Valley will continue its Eastern Sierra History series with their presentation “Into the Jaws of Hell…” from historian and author David Woodruff.

The 50-minute presentation will recount the dramatic and heroic tale, of how forlorn, starving and moribund Argonauts found demise in the desert instead of the riches of the goldfields they had sought, and christened the chilling name upon their near fatal location, Death Valley.

The presentation will be held in a heated tent at Wylder Resort on Hwy 88, just one mile east of the Highway 88 and 89 junction.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information, call 760-920-8061.
