Agreed! I have been very interested in this since I heard about it. After your report last week I went to the website to see the previews. I also sent my friends in SF to the Victoria to see it.

As an aside, I'm in the final stages of "California and the West." I had put off reading this because of the description of the text by a number of reviewers as a travelogue. In my opinion, the narrative is anything but a "travelogue." It is good stuff. The description of coming across the body at Cardizo is as good as the actual photographs. The details of the imitation $100 bills, the milk coupons and the Mickey Mouse spoon add depth, as does the conversation with the Sheriff afterward. I am very glad that I am finally reading this book.
