About the Author
John Mulhouse was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He received a MS degree in Botany from the University of Georgia and, while doing graduate work, developed an interest in photographing abandoned places and uncovering their history. In 2004, he began the City of Dust blog, which originally documented locations in Georgia and South Carolina, but quickly expanded in scope. In addition to Minnesota and Georgia, Mr. Mulhouse has lived in Tennessee and California, continuing his photography and exploration of decay and abandonment in both regions. He currently lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico and City of Dust continues, now largely covering the ghost towns of the desert Southwest. Mr. Mulhouse has released A Loss for Words & Other Stories: Excerpts from 10 Years of City of Dust, which collects non-historical pieces, including fiction and journal entries, originally posted on City of Dust. He has also published two photo books, Cities of Dust: American Decay 2003-2010 and Ghost Trains: The Lost Railyard of Albuquerque, New Mexico, documenting the city's historic and long-derelict Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe locomotive repair complex.

The pace of this book picks up as Gould keeps running, eventually toward a looming final confrontation with a dangerous adversary. I found myself quickly turning the pages and couldn't put it down! Mulhouse's writing style is clear and effortless, which makes it easy to absorb his descriptions of the desert southwest as the natural backdrop to a compelling and thrilling narrative. I will order ANY AND ALL future books by this author.
To me, it is best described as an eclectic art museum where the paintings are painted with words–some on large canvases, some are tiny. But many of them will somehow affect you like a provocative painting.
I also strongly recommend the author's wonderful website — City of Dust.
He is both a very gifted writer and photographer.
I highly recommend A Loss for Words!
