    This book was set back in 1904 when gold was first being discovered People came from all around to get a piece of the unending gold However the gold soon ran out and the town that had only been their for 6 years uickly became deserted Rhyolite was left to the coyotes and the desert Many people believe this town to be haunted I liked this book because of the rhyming scheme It make me want to keep reading I enjoyed how it told a historical story in a way that interest the reader I liked how it wasn't just a lot of facts This book could be used to teach children not to be greedy The people in this story moved to this town in the middle of the desert with the mind set of becoming extremely rich with gold However the people didn't even stay long because the town ran out of gold

    The whole story is a poem about a town that turned into a ghost town It is historical and true which makes it interesting The town of Rhyolite was one of the largest cities in Nevada and crashed suddenly when investors stopped putting their money in the mining operations there so now it is a ghost town There are also very nice woodcut illustrations
