Kickstarter begins for "Ghosts of the West" book

Updated: Mar 1, 2019

Some things just can't wait.

The lecture Ghost Towns of the American West proved so successful that many audience members asked for a book. While the next film is working its way through production (with a release still quite a ways off), be the first to get a copy of the new book about ghost towns unlike any other on the market today. (And if you support its publication, you can get your name in the print edition.)

Ghosts of the West: Tales and Legends from the Bonanza Trail is not a travel book; it is not a history book; and, it is not strictly a photo book like the "Images of America" series. It is a series of dramatic non-fiction stories about Old West ghost towns and mining camps, accompanied by both historical and contemporary photos. They are grouped into five chapters to tell tales of discovery, boom times, bust times, final fates, and lost mines.

And as you will see, the truth is sometimes more fascinating than oft-told and overly embellished legends.

The book is partially based upon the text of the lecture, the script for Best Documentary Award-winner Ghosts of the West: The End of the Bonanza Trail, and the research for and production of the forthcoming film Ghosts of the West: Stampede on the Bonanza Trail. course, there is a significant amount of material that is unique to the book.
