About the Author

Philip R. Woodhouse was led to the Monte Cristo region by his avocations of photography and mountain travel. Then his engineering education and training prompted him to research the history of the mines and railroad. For nearly two decades Woodhouse immersed himself in the story he likely knows more about Monte Cristo than did many who lived the story he tells.

14 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Thomas Lampinen on December 24, 1999
Format: Paperback
Monte Cristo is an old townsite below a sleepy glacial basin located eighty miles northeast of Seattle. It's the destination of thousands of recreational hikers annually. Hidden from their view by a century of harsh winter storms and avalanches is a rich mining and townsite history that Philip Woodhouse brings to life. We returned from a weekend hike so intrigued that we went directly to the public library Monday evening. We found precious little, mostly Washington mining reports and embarrassingly anecdotal histories. This book represents the only comprehensive, readable history of the environs. And it's a wonder to behold. Skillfully woven together are journalistic accounts, anecdotes, recognizable sketches and maps, and a narrative complemented by a generous collection of historical photos. Woodhouse is a writer evidently in love with these mountains and their history. His account is compelling and full of surprises, every bit as enchanting as the townsite it concerns.

This book is proof what gold will bring out in people. But its with a doubt the best book I ever read non fiction or fiction. I have read my copy several times over. No matter if your a prospector or just and arm chair adventurer, your gonna love this book. There are also a lot of great period pictures in the book.

This Book is a great book to read over and over again. There is so much information it's hard to take it all in and remember everything. I enjoyed it so much I own 3 copies.
If you like this book, you should read the Coffee Chased Us Up, by Elof Norman. Another great book which I also have the pleasure of owning. Check it out.
I found out about the Monte Cristo area when I was in high school and quickly became fascinated by its history and the beautiful mountains that surround the area. I eventually became involved with the MCPA which is The Monte Cristo Preservation Association. Feel free to visit the [..]
There are several other books on the Monte Cristo area, but most are out of print and very hard to find.
This is a must have book for any history buff or anyone interested in mining in Washington State.
