Thanks to author Roberta Martin Starry and her niece, Daphne Worshom, I have been doing an entire series of articles on the Western Mojave area - including Garlock, Goler, Randsburg, Red Mountain. Go to my website www.explorehistoricalif.com. April is Part II in a series about the respectable women of the area, including the proprietors, the school teachers, and property owners. The first part, about the "red light ladies" appears in my archives for the month of February.
March was about the Lost Mines - several of which are said to have been in the Goler - Garlock region. There is a picture accompanying that article that was taken of some of the mining going on in Goler during the old days. I was given more pictures by someone whose family was a part of Goler and Garlock's history, including one's of the school, which I will eventually post on my website in the coming months, as I get more articles written.
May, I will have stories about Dr. Rose La Monte Burcham, Ida Kelly, Edith Coons, and some of the other women who were involved with the famous mines of the Western Mojave area.
Roberta Martin Starry recently re-released an excellent book called Gold Gamble, which you can now get through www.amazon.com. It's also available at the Maturango Museum in Ridgecrest, and I saw it at the General Store in Randsburg when I was there this last weekend. I have listed a great many other books in the bibliographies accompanying each of my articles on the website.
I'm wondering if those unfriendly types that you saw were were the same one's that practically ran our group off the road on Saturday. Several in atv's darted in and out of our tour of 11 vehicles in a dangerous manner, even when there was plenty of room for them to get around us.
