Award-winning documentary filmmaker and author Nicholas Clapp will be signing copies of his latest book, “Gold and Silver in the Mojave: Images of a Last Frontier,” at the Eastern California Museum in Independence from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, April 13.
Clapp will make a presentation, followed by a question and answer session. Light refreshments will be served.
The photo book focuses on the colorful history of some of the wildest, booming and busted desert mining towns that popped up in a wide swath of generally inhospitable terrain, stretching from the southern Mojave Desert towns of Randsburg and Las Vegas northward through Death Valley and onward to Goldfield and Tonopah, Nev.
