Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 096754761X, Paperback)

Ghost towns on the Colorado prairies? You bet! Born from the railroads, war relocation, salvation, coal, agriculture, and grand schemes, their purposes varied like their colorful names. Who knew that there was once a Boston, Toonerville, and Delhi right here in Colorado? Many years ago there were, but today these places have faded into the forgotten past. They join the ranks of several hundred ghost towns, railroads, homesteads, forts, and abandoned cemeteries that make up the historic Colorado prairie. This guide describes 50 unique, less publicized Colorado ghost towns, most of which at the time of writing still had evidence remaining that could be viewed.
