If LeRoy isn't going to plug his own outstanding book, then let me do it for him. Even if you pick up a copy of Death Valley in '49 (Manly) be sure to also pick up LeRoy Johnson's "Escape from Death Valley as Told by William Lewis Manley and Other '49ers." This is an outstanding work which fully researches and annotates the original accounts, journals, and correspondence of the Death Valley 49er parties. The annotation and cross-referencing of the material is an outstanding addition to these already epic stories.
