    Default The Radium Queen of Mojave & Billy The Kid

    Josie Bishop, The Radium Queen of the Mojave, is buried on her property, between Redrock & Jawbone Canyons off of highway 14 in California. In addition to being known for the radium discoveries on her claims, there is an interesting relationship between Josie and Billy the Kid. For this month's Explore Historic California we will travel back in time by horse and buggy and find out what that relationship is. My husband has been too busy to meet the February 1st deadline, so it will appear this weekend. Meantime, this will give you something to ponder over.
