Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Oregon Desert is a wild, rough region that does things to people who try to change it. It is like "The anvil that wears the hammer out." Wild horses run through this book. All of the desert animals shyly peek out from its pages. Desert towns spring to life before your eyes and swiftly decay. Stories of life on the desert are told with deep subtle humor, wisdom, and charm, producing a delightful book.

Synopsis:

Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press

Settle into your four-wheel-drive vehicle or a chair and take off for the mining camps of Colorado! This book is an illustrated history of fifty-nine towns famous during the gold and silver rushes of the 1800s, with directions on how to get to each.
