This is a large format book. Extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail and International Mail.

Often when talking about ghost towns, the first image that comes to mind is that of an Old West village, a place that has become a legend, and a time, that of the gold rush, that has become a myth. In the 19th century more and more pioneers looking for fortune flooded the western United States, toward the frontier and toward unexplored lands. Cardsharps, miners, cowboys and prostitutes all overflowed these small towns, where soon arose saloons, brothels and also the respectable aspects of life. With time the mines ran out and these towns were abandoned as fast as they were built. Many ghost towns have been admirably restored and today have a great appeal. This book explores those forgotten towns of the Pacific Northwest.
