Ghost Towns of the West

Front Cover
Promontory Press, 1971 - Science - 872 pages
Prepared by the West's most traveled spook hunter, this is an accurate guide to over 400 ghost towns in the western U.S. and Canada. With tales of greed and gold, pictures of dust-blown ruins in the coyote country, and specters drifting out of shaft heads, the author brings back that other life in the ageless West. Hundreds of rare photos make the ghosts of the early West walk again.

User Review  - Beukeboom - LibraryThing

A fun, enjoyable look at old abandoned towns that dotted the western landscape (for the most part). Many of the places featured in the book have deteriorated into nothing since the book was published in 1971 but this book gives a good photographic record of the locales. Read full review
