Format: Paperback
Our family has enjoyed "Southern Idaho Ghost Towns" since the day we found this book. We even refer to it as the ghost towning "Bible". It has been read with ease and interest many times and I always catch something new. We have been to many of the towns mentioned, and the decriptions and stories about them are breathtaking. Sparling paints a realistic picure of early Idaho that you can enjoy simply through his eyes, or check out for yourself!

Format: Paperback
Wayne Sparling has put together an excellent ghost town book for southern Idaho (south of the Salmon River). Most of these towns, of course, were mining camps, and most of them probably still offer the visitor something man-made to look at (though disappearing fast). Towns are arranged by sections, with a map at the beginning of each section. (The maps are the only disappointing thing about the book: they aren't very detailed.) The book is packed with photos - just about every site has at least one photo. I finally picked up the latest edition; my earlier one completely fell apart from use. Hopefully it's updated again soon.

This is a great book for anyone with interest in Idaho Ghost Towns. It contains many interesting facts on the towns, and has plenty of good black and white photos to enjoy. It's a great book to take along on trips, so that when you can stop at one of these old ghost towns, you can read up on it.
