Lost mines, abandoned diggings, ghost towns! The very words conjure enigmatic images of the Old West—of the thousands of towns and mining camps that boomed and died during that brief era when men scrambled through unexplored territory, searching for the next big gold strike. Today, the old hotels and saloons stand in mute testimony to a fabled but faded past, when prospectors came to gamble, find and lose fortunes, or die without revealing the locations of rich and elusive mines. Their tales continue to fascinate and intrigue us—and even to haunt us.
