9780874171945: Railroads of Nevada and Eastern California, Vol. 2: The Southern Roads

Valuable as these volumes are in relation to railroad operations in Nevada and California, their usefulness as authoritative reference sources embraces a much broader scope. Railroads of Nevada and Eastern California is as much a history of the region as it is a study of the railroads. The principal mines and mills and their production are scrupulously detailed, together with the personalities who created them.

The setting for Volume II is the varied and spectacular geography of southern Nevada and eastern California—from Death Valley and the Mojave Desert to the hard rock tunnels of Goldfield and the isolated communities of Rhyolite and Pioche. This volume also contains an index and an updated locomotive roster.

About the Author:

David F. Myrick (1918-2011) was the author of several books about western history and western railroads, including the three volumes of Railroads of Nevada and Eastern California. He lived and wrote primarily in Santa Barbara, California.

Review:

“This is an admirable regional history of the last 150 years of regional growth with a sharp focus on the chief engine of that growth—the trains. Deeply, lovingly researched, Myrick’s will stand as the definitive history.” —Reference & Research Book News

“An absolute must for anyone interested in Western history, written with wit and pizazz, and presented with real skill.” —The Coast Book Review

"It's a fascinating, comprehensive coffee table-sized publication, even for non-railroad buffs." —Herald and News
