A reminder to old (and new) Nomads about some fantastic resources of information and reading entertainment are in these many editions of Desert Magazine...

Also, if we have missed any Baja articles or news in this list, please let me know and it will be added.

Thank you!

Thanks for making these magazines available to us, David. I used to read Desert Magazine when I was a kid in the '40's and '50's. Now I can go back and read the Baja ones again.

Baja Nomad 'dezertmag' and rejoined as 'dzeertmag2' did the work, as well as another Desert Fan.

I loved them as well, but more in the '60's and '70's (along with Four Wheeler Magazine)!


It was great to meet the Editor/ publisher/ owner of Desert Magazine of much of the 60's, as well!



I made a website to house many of the photos she took or had from her Baja expeditions: http://choralpepper.com/

Here was Choral listening to the great mystery writer and creator of Perry Mason, Erle Stanley Gardner, sitting around a Baja campfire. Baja was a great escape from the demands of Hollywood for Gardner, and he loved solving mysteries... using all the people, special off road vehicles and helicopters to accomplish the mission!

FOUND ONE!


February 1949 on page 25:
"We Found a Cave of Lost Art"
Giant cave site found by well-known photographer Ed Davis.

It is a familiar cave site and now we can see how they looked in 1949!

The figures are very similar to the ones at Mesa el Carmen... but not the same:





I just thumbed through my three editions of Harry Crosby's 'The Cave Paintings of Baja California' and Clement Meighan's 'Indian Art and History' (Baja California / Dawson Book Series #13) and could not find the same figures as in Ed Davis's photos.

Just an update to this thread.
The archive of Desert Magazines was not showing several issues in full.
I just came across another archive of old Desert Magazines that appears to be good: http://swdeserts.com/archive%20master%2037%2085.htm for 1937-1985 editions. Plus, this person is selling the entire collection on CD for just ten bucks.

Here is the homepage: http://swdeserts.com/

It's a two CD set and it's great. I even made chicken and dumplings from a recipe in one magazine.
