DV map suggestions wanted

Am headed to Death Valley the end of March. Would like to get a decent map of the area and maybe a book about DV and it's trails/history. Any suggestions?

There are two excellent maps for DV:

I prefer the Tom Harrison map because the whole park is depicted on one side, where Nat Geo breaks it in two, one on each side.

Both those that Joe recommends are good. Stop at the visitor center and buy a book.

Titus Canyon is highly recommended, we loved it.

Just got done with a trip there using the Trails Illustrated map. I would also recommend following the Facebook group that updates road conditions, it was very helpful during our visit.

The Backcountry Adventures Southern Ca version is a good one to have if you can still find it. The maps themselves are not very good but has GPS locations. Even though I have GPS software, I don't often use them. But the trail information, history and the flora and fauna descriptions are very well done.
Fun Trek books are also nice. The NP site also has a fairly good PDF map

If you want a good electronic map including DV take a look at California Trail Map https://www.californiatrailmap.com/
It shows current trails. I have found it to be very accurate and complete.

They have versions for Garmin, Lowrance, Android and IOS.

Auto Club's Death Valley Map and Roger Mitchell's Death Valley SUV Trails are nice to have.
