The Rocky Mountain and Great Basin states are the heart of ghost-town country. Once-bustling pioneer outposts, mining camps, lumber towns, and railroad villages stand today as reminders of the glory days of gold rushes, industrial progress, and that pioneering spirit of the Old West. This book guides readers to the fascinating and scenic ghost towns of Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Nevada. Varney highlights popular tourist destinations as well as out-of-the-way spots unfamiliar even to natives of the region. Maps, historical background, and stunning color photographs bring to life dozens of ghost towns and provide practical information for exploring this fascinating chapter of American history.

Long-time ghost-town hunter Philip Varney is the author of six ghost-town guides, including Ghost Towns of Colorado, Ghost Towns of Northern California, and Ghost Towns of the Pacific Northwest. He is a regular contributor to Arizona Highways magazine and frequently leads travel groups on ghost-town tours. He lives in Tucson, Arizona.
