Preserving the Glory Days, Ghost Towns and Mining Camps of Nye County, Nevada by Shawn Hall
"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 - first exploiting veins of gold and silver, and more recently, extracting deposits of raw materials for modern industry, such as molybdenum and barite. It was here that famous boomtowns like Tonopah and Rhyolite sprang up following the discovery of nearby lodes that 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. "
