Homestead Publishers.

Homestead Publishers. intro by Lucile and Harold Weight. Helen Bagley's Sand in My Shoe allowed me to see our desert community as more than just a quaint little village along Highway 62. It brought to life the character and stamina it took to not only survive in the high desert, but build a happy and rewarding life. It presented lessons for modern times.

Sand in my shoe book. Helen and Frank Bagley are my great grandparents. Helen even signed my copy of the book, just months before she passed in 1988, at age 91. In this book Helen relates a truly unique pioneer experience. The Mojave Desert in the 1920's was truly one of the last frontiers of the United States. Though times were tough, the Bagleys made a truly beautiful life for themselves there. Some of Helen's stories are simply amazing. She writes vividly of the many characters she encountered in the untamed sands. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

It made me appreciate so much how things are now in my desert since this book showed so many hassels they endured when this area was new. There was only a one lane dirt road from 29 Palms to Banning? I cannot imagine anyone being able to tolerate that today! Driving by hours by old cars in the wagon tracks of earlier pioneers to get supples? You lived through it in this great book of Helen's family experiences! A wonderful read!

Great history of Twentynine Palms CA. Tells you how Two Mile Road got its name. Easy to read and very, very interesting information about some of the first settlers to live in Twentynine Palms CA.

I just finished reading last night. I am no doubt very biased but I think my grandmother has beautifully captured a feeling of early desert life much like a painter captures and celebrates the beauty in a landscape. The book is chicken soup for the soul in this world we now live in. Simplicity, community and friendship written within it now seem like a wishful fairytale. I am so proud of her and have decided I must return to her beloved town to celebrate all that she shared. I think you will also enjoy.

We lived in 29 Palms in the early 70's and had the privilege and honor of meeting Mrs. Bagley and other early residents. As a result, this book is a great and interesting history of that desert community. If you are interested in 29 Palms history, I highly recommend it. By the way, the book is appropriately named as if you are wearing low top shoes, you will end up with sand in them; 29 Palms is the beach without the ocean.

I lived in 29 when I was a small child, (2-5 yrs old, 1948-51), but never knew much about the little town. This is a wonderful book that brings the desert to life. I was raised (after 29) in Tucson until 1964, so still lived in the desert--albeit a more populated one. Now I live in Southern California, and desire only vine-covered cottages and lots and lots of plants. No desire to ever return to the desert, but glad I grew up there.
