Meet the prospectors, forlorn widows, and other spirits who haunt the historic remnants of Nevada's former boomtowns-includes photos! In the throes of early financial disaster, the Silver State had little to entice newcomers-or discourage residents from leaving. Jim Butler's silver discovery at Tonopah changed everything. With a subsequent gold discovery near Goldfield, the rush was on, and from these burgeoning mines, Nevada's early leaders amassed their wealth and power. In this fascinating book, paranormal historian Janice Oberding shares firsthand accounts of ghostly encounters in the Goldfield and Mizpah Hotels and uncovers the history behind the mysterious cowboy ghost, the haggard hitchhiker, and other eerie local tales.
