Southern Idaho Ghost Towns

by

Southern Idaho Ghost Towns Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press

When mineral riches were found in southern Idaho "boomtowns" arose across this rugged land.  When the mining activity ceased these towns were quickly abandoned yet they still stand; a testimony to the vagaries of life in the frontier in pursuit of gold and silver.

Synopsis:

Here is an excellent guide to eighty-four of Idaho's most interesting ghost towns — places with names like Bayhorse, Yankee Fork and Silver City. Along with the history of each town, Sparling breaks the descriptions down by region and gives the current state of preservation. Both armchair travelers and wilderness explorers will be delighted with the treasures to be found.

About the Author

Wayne C. Sparling incorporated his interest in ghost towns with his work with the U.S. Forest Service in Idaho.  Southern Idaho Ghost Towns was his first book.
