It is with great pleasure that I announce the publication of my latest book Desperate Dreams. It is a fine, large format, coffee table. photo book, featuring over 350 images of remote ghost towns, camps and mines in Nevada and the east slope of the California Sierra. This book is the end result of nine yeas of exploration and research and is the selective distillation of my visits to over 200 sites to date. There are photographs and descriptive text for over 50 locations dating from the 1850s. No other such detailed modern, colour, photo book exists of these interesting and inspirational, historical sites. Join in this exceptional exploration from the comfort of your own home.
If you would like a larger preview, click on the two diagonal arrows at the top right over the cover image on the preview page. I suggest you also click on the ‘Dust Jacket’ selection beneath the cover image as there are additional images and text on the flaps.
