First published in 1963 this little gem is a wonderful guide. Updated on and off over the years to reflect changes to the ghost towns conditions. A real glimpse of the Colorado of my childhood and still a great take along
Most of the information in this book is horribly outdated. The trails are rougher and the ruins are nearly gone. I wish someone would update the book
It is nice to know what WAS there at 1 point in time.
One of my most favorite books ever. The descriptions are from the glory days before time, weather and vandals ruined these fascinating places. Great history and vivid descriptions. Still useful in helping find spots and or getting a better perspective on the area. I bought it last year before a trip to the San Juans and it greatly added to my enjoyment by bringing a historical persepctive to the places I visited. It also helped me to plan a route to explore.
Lots of the trails are still there though the book is way outdated. Lots of great information though.
I love this book because I have traveled to most of the Ghost Towns talked about in this book. Some of the pictures are the same as ones that I photographed while there. I am doing a slide show for my children of the places we visited and it helps me label the pictures for them. It is hard to remember the names of places until I got this book. We were there about 35 years ago and at that time we used the book Stampede to Timberline by Muriel Wolle as a guide. We basically followed the Switzerland Trail and started out from Boulder. We met Jimmy Hubbard at Ward who was a firemen and brakeman on the Denver-RioGrande railroad who told us about the book Switzerland Trail of America which we bought from the author, Forest Crossen.
