Editorial Reviews

Journal of the West

" Ghost Towns of The Colorado Rockies follows a unique format which adds to the interest and value of the book. The author has included a present-day picture taken from the same angle. Furthermore, Mr. Brown personally visited each of the towns or town sites described and includes in his work detailed information for the reader wishing to do likewise. The book thus becomes a "must" for anyone planning to visit the lesser-known early Colorado mining camps." — Journal of the West
