More About This Book

Overview

Author Philip Varney visited his first ghost town when he was 11. Ever since, he has searched the West to learn about its mysterious abandoned places — places that once pulsed with life and desperate dreams.

Varney is uniquely qualified to write about these markers of the past. As a man of letters, he is past chairman of the English department at Rincon High School in Tucson. As a seasoned outdoorsman, he has ridden road bicycles and mountain bikes over many of the great mountain passes of the American West. Some of the ghost towns and mining camps he describes are ones he first saw while on a bicycle.

Arizona Ghost Towns and Mining Camps, originally published in 1994, was Varney's fifth book. He's also authored authoritative ghost town guides for northern and southern California, Colorado, New Mexico, and the Pacific Northwest.

Since the first printing, he has revisited the sites and made other checks to update information about the towns. And with GPS device in hand, he's noted waypoints that will greatly enhance your back-roads experience.

So, take your time. Savor the stories. Use the maps and waypoints to plan your trips. And, most importantly, let this guide kindle your imagination.
