qShawn Hall, who has devoted his career to exploring and recording Nevada's historic sites, first published a guide to Nye County's ghost towns in 1981. Since then, he has continued his research into the county's past and has uncovered much new information and corrected some errors. To prepare this revised and greatly expanded edition, he revisited all 175 sites recorded earlier and has added more than 20 previously unlisted sites. Preserving the Glory Days entirely supplants the first edition, providing new information about each site, a current assessment of its condition, clear directions for locating each site, and many previously unpublished photographs.q qPreserving the Glory Days offers a lively, informative record of Nevada's isolated interior. It will engage readers curious about the region's boom and bust past and will guide explorers and desert enthusiasts to the locations of some of the West's most fascinating ghost towns and historic sites.q--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
