Artist's Description

Main street Bodie U.S.A., wide but covered by grass. Why do you need a sleigh? It is not uncommon to have twenty-foot snowdrifts in the 1859 mining town. The “bad man” from Bodie during the winter was just trying to stay alive.
It is gruesome, but the town is named after a man who did not survive his first winter. He and his partner returning with supplies separated during a blizzard Waterman S. Bodey found in the spring with his head split open. Some thought his partner killed him. After an investigation, his partner was exonerated, the death called an accident, and he froze to death. His head, split open by the cold weather when he froze.
The towns named after him, but somebody misspelled his name, Bodie. Bodie did not boom until the 1870’s and it see-sawed into the 20th Century.
