Deanne Stillman brakes for sand. Her latest book is the critically acclaimed "Desert Reckoning: A Town Sheriff, a Mojave Hermit, and the Biggest Manhunt in Modern California History," a Rolling Stone "must-read for the summer" and an Amazon editors' pick for July 2012. It's based on her Rolling Stone piece, "The Great Mojave Manhunt," which appears in Best American Crime Writing '06 and was a finalist for a PEN journalism award. Her previous book was "Mustang: The Saga of the Wild Horse in the American West" (Houghton Mifflin), a Los Angeles Times "best book 08," and well-reviewed in the Atlantic Monthly, the Economist, NPR's "On Point," Seattle Times, Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Tucson Citizen, Albuquerque Journal, and elsewhere. She also wrote the bestseller "Twentynine Palms: A True Story of Murder, Marines, and the Mojave," recently published in a new, updated edition by Angel City Press, with a foreword by T. Jefferson Parker and preface by Charles Bowden. It was originally a Los Angeles Times "best book 2001," and Hunter Thompson called it "a strange and brilliant story by an important American writer."
