In discussions with the tribe in the late 1990's over development of the Timbisha Shoshone Homelands act, their leaders and anthropologists from the University of Nevada, Reno they had retained to document the boundaries of their historic homeland never mentioned the existence of a book about them. Yoy have discovered bits and pieces of information already. I don't know if they include the following articles from late 19th century issues of American Anthropologist:

E. W. Nelson, "The Panamint and Saline Valley Indians", vol. IV no.1 (January, 1891): 371-372.

Frederick Vernon Coville, "The Panamint Indians of California", vol. V no.3 (July, 1892): 351-361.

B. H. Dutcher, "Pinion Gathering Among the Panamint Indians", vol. VI no. 2 (April, 1893): 377-380.

You might try to track down Elmer Rusco at UNR or Tribal leader Richard Boland on the DVNP staff in Furnace Creek for more information.
