“History Talks!” Lecture: Marshal South and the Ghost Mountain Chronicles: An Experiment in Primitive Living


From 1930 to 1947, poet, artist, and author Marshal South and his family lived on Ghost Mountain—a remote, waterless, windswept mountaintop in Blair Valley on the western edge of the Colorado Desert, now part of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Over a period of nine of those years, South chronicled his family’s controversial primitive and natural lifestyle through monthly articles written for Desert Magazine. His articles were the reality entertainment of the day—a sort of early version of Survivor with thousands of readers awaiting the next installment.

Join us as Author and Historian Diana Lindsay delves into the backstory of this fascinating book and shares insight into the South Family’s life on the remote Ghost Mountain.
