Description

"[A] photo-packed look at Southern Nevada's boom-and-bust civic casualties" (Las Vegas Review-Journal). Ghost towns and mining camps are the last remaining vestiges of the Old West; there is a mystique surrounding these places that has made exploring them a pastime for many in the western United States. Nevada has more than a thousand of these boom-and-bust towns. Some are completely abandoned, while some still struggle to survive and even serve as county seats. Sadly, these wonderful places, including those covered in this volume, are constantly in danger from vandalism and neglect. Many ghost towns and mining camps have been destroyed or damaged needlessly, and those who are captivated by their charm must protect these windows into history so that they survive for future generations. Includes photos! "Few folks know as much about Nevada ghost towns as author Shawn Hall." —Nevada Appeal
