Treasure Facts

"For those who wish to explore the many ghost towns of beautiful Colorado, there is an excellent book that provides all of the above. Jeep Trails To Colorado Ghost Towns by Robert L. Brown is an excellent guide to many of the old ghost towns and mining areas which once dominated a portion of Colorado. In this guide, one finds helpful descriptions, histories, and photographs. I used Brown's book on a recent exploratory trip into the Colorado Rockies and, on arriving at each and every site I selected to visit, I felt I knew it intimately as a result of studying this guide."—Treasure Facts

    Bitten by the Bug

    After reading Mr. Browns book,'Jeep Trails to Colorado Ghost Towns' I became 'hooked' on exploring these historical places. Being retired I was looking for something to do and I found it in the book. Now on weekends I load up the 'old' Jeep and head for the hills. Mr. Browns style and attention to detail makes this a book you can't do without, if you want to see Colorado History for real.
