After a year and a half of having minimal fund raisers because of you know why. The 29 Palms Historical Society is pleased to host the Last Ever Red Hot Auction.

The purpose of the auction is to raise funds to help pay for the replacement air conditioner/furnace in the old school room.

According to event organizer and auctioneer Larry Bowden, "The Red Hot Auctions in the past have helped pay for an old bus restoration, build a rather large building and put shingles on an old schoolhouse. The Red Hot Auctions in the past have been successful, funny, entertaining, and a great all around night out."

So mark Saturday, September 25th at 6pm on your calendar to be at Founder's Hall at the Old Schoolhouse Museum, 6760 National Park Drive.

The Silent auction will begin at 6pm and the live auction will start at 6:45 We will be using Founders Hall and the Courtyard so there will be plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Some auction items will be posted on the 29 Palms Historical Society Facebook page over the next week.

If you have any question or something you would like to donate to be auctioned, please contact Larry Bowden at 760-501-1718.

One With The Creosote – Memories of a Desert Child
With a blending of poetic imagery and journalistic prose, writer Chris Tiffany reflects on her childhood growing up on the Mojave Desert during the '50s and '60s, to reveal the origins of an interwoven connection to the natural world around her and its influence on her life's paths and perspectives.

Tiffany, a Santa Ynez Valley resident who grew up in Twentynine Palms, is daughter of the late Joe and Margot Spangenberg, who moved their family from San Pedro, California, to Twentynine Palms in 1953. The Oasis of Mara, at the northern entrance to Joshua Tree National Park, was her childhood playground.

Photo of Chris Tiffany Since age 10, Tiffany has kept personal diaries and journals, and credits her writing talent to her mother, who worked as a reporter for The Desert Trail for many years.

A graduate of the University of California, Irvine, Tiffany is a former director of the Santa Ynez Valley Family School, whose curriculum encourages exploration of the surrounding Los Padres National Forest as an extension of the classroom.

A 40-year resident of the Santa Ynez Valley, she is a past editor of the Women's Environmental Watch newsletter, and served as the initial publicist and program coordinator for Arts Outreach for many years.

She continues to enjoy frequent retreats to her cabin on the boundary of Joshua Tree National Park.

Willie Boy & The Last Western Manhunt
By Clifford E Trafzer

The saga of Willie Boy has survived over one hundred years and the captivating story remains alive today. American Indians throughout Southern California, the American Southwest, and Great Basin remember the story well. Willie Boy’s pursuit of redemption, his attempt to become culturally whole again, reflects a tragic journey that still resonates today, over a hundred years on from the deaths of William Mike and Carlota. In his journey to survive, Willie Boy challenged numerous lawmen eager to capture or kill him, prompting the posse, press, and citizens to demonize Willie Boy.

Clifford E. Trafzer is a Distinguished Professor of History and Costo Chair of Amerian Indian Affairs at the University of California, Riverside. He has published A Chemehuevi Song, Fighting Invisible Enemies, Strong Hearts & Healing Hands, and Shadows of Sherman Institute.
