Ghost Towns of the Mojave National Preserve
Mojave National Preserve was established in 1994 through the California Desert Protection Act. Its 1.6 million acres makes it the third largest entity in the National Park system (contiguous States). Among its most popular sites are the Cima Dome, Mitchell Caverns, the Kelso Dunes, the Mojave Road and the Kelso Depot.
There are hundreds of abandoned mines within the Preserve, and scores of abandoned mining camps and towns. This book will look at many of the major ones as they appear today - all of the photos in this book have been taken in the 21st century.
Included in the book are detailed directions on how to get to the sites, as well as a personal rating system of how worthwhile the remains at each sight are to see.
Contains 93 photos taken by the author. In the "Color edition", all photos are in color.
