The Mojave Desert, rich with cowboy and Indian legends, was settled by people who celebrated life, ranching, mining and cowboy ethics. Billy Mitchell, fourth generation of one of the founding families of Barstow, is a rancher, cowboy, father, grandfather, great grandfather and resident of Johnson Valley.  He will relate his fascinating and compelling story about growing up in the Mojave Desert with his rancher grandfather.

With Billy will be Hilary Sloane, a photographer who has been documenting cowboy life in the High Desert.
