About this title


Sixty-two ghost towns from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana are individually described with the history of each town and specific directions on how to find them. Nearly twenty are unknown to the general public. The author has given you a head start in your quest, having explored new angles for information on some of the more familiar ghost towns, or visiting with old timers for an offbeat story or two.

Store Description

I do not have a brick and mortar storefront, listing from home utilizing HomeBase - Nearly all of the books listed are only available single copy, some are new/as new - most are fine or very good - Many unusual/ Collectible/Signed - First Editions/1st printing when possible. I have been a lover and collector of books since early childhood, participating in Metaphysical and Art Bookstore during the 1970's in San Francisco, Ca., Hence, many of the Spiritual, Art and Fantasy/Science Fiction - unusual books are from my private library collection. Art, Beauty, Film, Higher Knowledge - and books that inspire - these continue to come my way and I would love to make them available to others.
