Riassunto: Domestic travel continues to be popular, with travelers everywhere looking for interesting places to visit. By combining his personal travel observations with historical background, ghost town authority Philip Varney brings this region to life in "Ghost Towns of Northern California."
"Ghost Towns of Northern California" is comprehensive, introducing readers to more than 50 towns and sites--from out-of-the-way Campo Seco, New Idria, and Bennettville to popular sites such as Coloma, Columbia, and Bodie--capturing the spirit of the wild west by combining engaging, lively text with captivating current and historical photos.
Besides covering the Gold Rush of 1849 and the later strikes that led to the rise of these mining camps and ghost towns, Varney also visits ghost forts, two Chinese fishing villages, and the famous "ghost prison" of Alcratraz. All of this fascinating information is accented by up-to-date travel information, including recommendations for tours and museums, maps, directions, mileage, and road conditions, making it easy for readers to ensure a safe, exciting trip.
