Shawn Hall's first book, "Connecting the West: Historic Railroad Stops and Stage Stations in Elko, Nevada," focuses on the Central Pacific and other railroads that early on connected Nevada to the rest of the nation. This work, "Old Heart of Nevada," is a compendeum of information about early towns and mining camps in Elko County. Both books need to be read by people curious about eastern Neavda history. I'm grateful for them as I write fictionalized accounts of life in Nevada, in the 1880s.

Another very good history of Elko county, Nevada. There was some repetition between this and Connecting the West, but it was not excessive, as this focused primarily on mining camps. Definitely enjoyed this one as well.
