Over 6,000 ghost towns have existed in the history of Kansas. Many of these were boom towns that evolved into major communities overnight, and disappeared just as fast. Some of these fascinating places were mining towns, steamboat towns, trail stops, railroad hubs, and county seat contenders. Their stories are all exciting, and many of their locations are mostly forgotten. Daniel Fitzgerald revisits over a hundred of these mysterious ghosts. Like a detective sorting through the dusty, dark corners of the state's history, he brings them back to life in his sixth and last volume of all new material. Ghost Towns of Kansas: 6 is an epic finale spanning 35 years. It is one of the longest-running and most successful Kansas history series ever created. It promises to be Fitzgerald's most exciting chapter yet.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. 433 pages. The final volume in the Ghost Towns of Kansas series is Ghost Towns of Kansas: 6. Over six thousand ghost towns have boomed, prospered, and died during the history of the Sunflower State. Some were true boom towns that prospered for a variety of reasons, going from zero to several thousand residents in a short period of time. Then, just as quickly, they disappeared from view. Others fought vicious county seat wars, where the victors became the seat of justice and the losers disappeared. Others were mining towns. They prospered while the coal, lead and zinc, oil, and cement industries boomed, and just as quickly died out when the industries disappeared. Ghost Towns of Kansas: 6 covers 110 of these boom towns from across the state. This sixth and final volume completes a series that began in 1976. The author won numerous emmy awards based on some of the towns covered in these volumes. The rock band, Kansas, covered one of the towns, Neosho Falls, with a concept rock album. History lovers and armchair adventurers will love the stories depicted in this volume. The stories of each town come alive as the obscure and unexplained aspects of the history of Kansas are depicted. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781448603893
