“The Man Who Beat Death Valley,” the Graphic Novel by Deb Fox Design Co., Racks Up Kudos

San Francisco, CA, February 27, 2023 –(CarryOnHarry.com)– Author/illustrator Deborah A. Fox’s latest graphic novel, “The Man Who Beat Death Valley,” has earned two awards and high praise from reviewers. It is available on Amazon and on the author’s website, debfoxdesign.com.

True Story: The long-form graphic novel tells the story of 19th-century pioneer William Lewis Manly, who rescued two families from starvation in Death Valley by trekking nearly 500 miles of brutal desert. Fox highlights not only Manly’s heroism but his racially equitable attitudes which were unusual for that time. Winning Writers noted creator Fox’s “noble and respectful portrayal of the diverse inhabitants of the West.” The 104-page graphic novel includes maps, extensive historical notes, and a bibliography suitable for educators.

Fox comments: “I love Death Valley and the American West. When I learned about Manly’s story of heroism and survival, I had to bring it to life. It’s an incredible tale of American guts, unrequited love, friendship, and betrayal.”
