Product Description

Idaho Ghost Towns and Mining Camps by Robert E. Ballard provides the most updated accounting of the mining camps and towns that grew and prospered during one of the greatest gold and silver strikes ever seen in the western United States. Adventurers from all walks of life ventured into unknown regions to play a game of chance with finding wealth in a mountain stream or deep beneath the snow-covered earth. Behind them they left the towns they had built, the railroad tracks that had connected them to the outside world and equipment now rusted from years of abandonment.

Follow easy directions to locate the sites of over 120 towns and camps throughout Idaho. Lodging is suggested along the way when more than one day is required. You will even learn how one camp in Idaho helped to achieve our victory in WW2. It all took place right here.
