From the Back Cover
A loose door knocks in the breeze. Cattle feed past the tilted skeleton of a barn.
Underneath, if you listen hard enough, you can hear the faint sounds of a tin pan piano, the crack of a miner's hammer against stone, the distant giggle of dancehall girls. Peppered throughout Montana, the remains of a bygone age stand weathering in slowly fading bits and pieces. Read about Castle Town, once home to more than 1,500 miners and families, now a sparse scattering of cabins and frame shacks. Explore Garnet, named after a semiprecious stone, abandoned after more than $10 million in gold was taken from the surrounding mines. And browse the beehive-shaped charcoal kilns of Glendale, southwest of Butte.
About the Author
Top customer reviews
I had hoped to find a guide to the many ghost towns in the state I live in and love. I now have great information on each town, but have to go to a secondary source to locate them if I want to visit them.
So, in essance, this book provides some cute tales and backgrounds of quite a few Montana ghost towns. It's up to the reader to look up their location.
