E. S. KNIGHTCHILDE'S
THE HAUNTED WEST
MULTIMEDIA PROGRAM AND LECTURE
A multimedia "edutainment" program and lecture
consisting of history both real and imagined,
ideal as seasonal programming for classrooms, libraries, historical societies, and theaters.
By the writer-director of Ghosts of the West.
ABOUT THE SHOW
From the Colorado Rockies to the Sierra Nevada, from the Oregon forests to the Arizona desert, stories of those who sought their fortunes in the old mining camps continue to haunt the American West. And while many once-booming cities have been lost to memory, the legends to which they gave rise remain an enduring part of folklore.
During decades of research and travel to hundreds of Old West ghost towns, documentary filmmaker and author E. S. Knightchilde has encountered the fascinating, the heart-rending, and the inexplicable.
Seeking something with a seasonal flair for their October meeting, a private group of Denver metro attorneys commissioned this lecture in 2022.
In The Haunted West, Knightchilde presents a series of tales from the somber to the supernatural, of history both real and imagined, of ghost towns and of ghosts that may yet linger.
