Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Varney, who has written books on ghost towns in Arizona and Southern California, presents a beautiful tribute to the colorful past and fantastic landscape of Colorado. Over 90 ghost townsAtowns that have decreased markedly in population and whose initial reason for settlement no longer existsAare introduced. The state is divided into 11 contiguous regions with an accompanying map, and regions and sites are arranged in a logical progression for driving ease. The maps not only show the location for each site but also distinguish among major, secondary, and minor sites. Exceptionally beautiful photographs, a brief history with anecdotes, what to see, and directions are given for each town. This is definitely an off-the-beaten-path travel guide; for information regarding accommodations or campgrounds, another guide to Colorado is required. Tourists and armchair travelers alike will enjoy.AJulia Stump, Voorheesville P.L., NY
