At one time little towns, prospects, and ranches made a fragile web across the Black Rock Desert. Some of the ranches remain, the rest have disappeared into memory. And those memories are fading; are becoming ghosts. This book grabs back some of those memories. How people set up their homes and raised their families. How they celebrated. The legends and myths they created. A rich community in spirit though mostly poor in material things. A much different world. Already gone. Leaving the Black Rock to a huge gold mine on the eastern side and the Burning Man Festival on the western edge and only the railroad in between.

Civilization, ceremony, and survival... The Black Rock Desert circa 1920. Good read.
