About the Author:

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.

Review:

“What sets this fine effort apart from many of the rest is its regional specificity: it covers just three counties in eastcentral Nevada instead of an entire state or region. The result is a guide which covers more than 180 sites with directions to, and a brief historical profile of, each.” —Books of the Southwest (Books of the Southwest)

“Hall’s handy guide to the ghost towns and mining camps of Eureka, Lander, and White Pine counties is superior to many others currently available. His exuberance and fascination with Nevada’s glorious mining past is infectious.” —Phillip I. Earl, Nevada Historical Society (Phillip I. Earl Nevada Historical Society)

“Hall presents a vast about of detail in an accessible, informative, and entertaining manner. The selection and quantity of photographs will add much to the historical value and popularity of this book.” —Harold E. Klieforth, Desert Research Institute (Harold E. Klieforth Desert Research Institute)
