Long ago, in a proud desert town named Rhyolite, businesses thrived and children played and people had dreams that were big and grand. But Rhyolite survived only a few years before those dreams were dashed and the desert reclaimed the town. Now theMoreLong ago, in a proud desert town named Rhyolite, businesses thrived and children played and people had dreams that were big and grand. But Rhyolite survived only a few years before those dreams were dashed and the desert reclaimed the town. Now the streets are populated by laughing coyotes and the ghosts of happier times. What happened to this once-prosperous place? In fluent, compelling verse, this unusual and witty picture book tells the story of the rise and fall of a real-life Nevada town built near the site of a famous 1904 gold strike. Dramatic woodcuts by David Frampton bring this haunting tale of a ghost town stunningly to life. Author’s note.
