The Rolands, from Missoula, have spent two decades locating and photographing ghost towns that arose during Montanas gold and silver rushes of the 19th century.

Here, 250 of their color images are collected, along with intriguing historical photographs of the towns heydays.

Fifer's text tells about life in the towns, prospectors, outlaws, vigilantes, town characters, corporate shenanigans, and more. Colorful newspaper excerpts let the camps speak for themselves. Index.

Or coffe table if you wish. This book really makes you want to go out and see what that type of living was like. Good read.
Item was as described, great seller.
Great condition! Thank you!
crazy mashine
Nice book for it's included ghost towns and photos, but not what you are looking for if you want to discover ghost towns less publicized. I'd consider it a coffee table book. The photos are small but artistic and engrossing.
Great Book
