"In the rich and enduring lexicon of the American West, the roll call of its resources and tally of its wonderments, no names are more fragrant with romance and high destinies than the now ghostly place names and institutional names of Nevada… The mills, whose stacks and towering battlements once made a metropolis along the river as dense as the mills of Pittsburgh today, are now vanished in the desert more completely than the traces of Carthage or the nine cities of Troy."

"The local irregularities in attitude probably resulted from disruption during intrusion of the large biotite-hornblende syenite body against this contact. Local strong brecciation of layered rocks and intimate penetration by syenite along the west edge of the mafic and ultramafic complex also attest to the disruption effected by the syenite intrusion."

"Since that time men have always had a difficult time to get salt. They have to remove all their clothes and even beads–naked as when they were born–and go in quiet as can be. They must not speak a word or laugh or make fun, and then they can take all they wish. If they speak or laugh or make fun, they will stand just where they are and die.
