296 pages. Softcover. Brand new book. NEVADA. Nye County is Nevada's largest and least populated county, but it is also the site of many of the state's most colorful ghost towns and mining camps. The county's economy throughout its history has been largely based on its mines&emdash; first, exploiting veins of gold and silver, and more recently deposits of raw materials for modern industry, such as molybdenum and barite. It was here that famous boomtowns like Tonopah and Rhyolite sprang up after the discovery of nearby lodes brought in rushes of prospectors and the merchants who supported them. But the county includes many smaller, shorter-lived camps and numerous abandoned stagecoach and railroad stops associated with defunct mining operations. This book offers a lively, informative record of Nevada's isolated interior. First published in 1981, this edition, expanded in 1999, includes new information uncovered by revisiting all 175 original sites and visiting more than 20 previously unlisted sites. Shawn Hall has devoted his career to exploring and recording historic sites, ghost towns, and abandoned mining camps in each of Nevada's seventeen counties. Hall is director of the Tonopah Historic Mining Park in Nye County, Nevada. "Perhaps most noteworthy is the impressive collection of historical photographs that pique the interest of the interest of the 'armchair reader. ' This is a valuable resource for travelers and scholars alike." &emdash; Melinda Jette, Department of History, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada (Key Words: Shawn Hall, Nevada's Ghost Towns, Nevada's Boom Towns, Nevada's Mining Camps, Nevada's Stagecoach & Railroad Stops).
