Hall has written books about the ghost towns of other Nevada counties, but he chose Nye county for his first book and with good reason. No other region approaches it, both in numbers of sites and interesting stories. Some of the now abandoned towns of Nye County once approached populations of 10,000.
Hall began exploring Nye County ghost towns as a college student, and visited all of the places listed here (excepting the ones located in "off-limits" government areas) prior to writing the book. He is the preeminent expert today on Nevada ghost towns. This book contains histories for each place, directions on how to get to each one, and a wealth of interesting stories about Nevada in mid-19th to early 20th centuries. I found the first edition of this book 30 years ago, and have returned to it often since. It, along with Hall's other works, is highly recommended.
The book is devided into region of the county (South, East, etc), and then arranged in alphabetical order, with directions and an historial account of each town. Well written and researched, with great photos!
