David Myrick is probably our most prolific historian of frontier railroads. He has somehow restored to life countless short-lived, and a handful of still-operating, lines in the region treated here. Any serious student of mining in the locale will find in this volume information virtually impossible to recover except through years of grueling, if exciting, research. In short, this is an indispensable source for its subject.

If you are a railfan, this book is for you. Truckloads of classic, vintage black-and-white photography from a century or more ago with some occasional modern (i.e., not as old) thrown in for good measure. I have been a few of the locations that are documented in this book, and it is outstanding. Worth the money, worth the read, albeit a bit wordy at times.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Incredibly thoroughly researched book, with legions of photos of railroads now long gone, rolling stock and, surprisingly, a lot of mine sites. More detail here in one place on the development of the CA-NV deserts than you'd ever hope to find anywhere else.
