Colorado Ghost Towns: Past and Present Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press

This is the third in Robert L. Brown's series of picturesque guidebooks to another era.  In text and photographs he has captured the sense of the historic as well as the nostalgic of a new selection of ghost towns and mining camps that dot the back country byways and high mountain valleys of Colorado.

Synopsis:

History, nostalgia, and detailed travel directions combine to provide background for exploring sixty-five of Colorado's ghost towns and mining camps. Brown pairs early and contemporary photographs of many towns, as he tells of the pioneer people and places. Includes accurate and detailed directions.
