ON THE BACK COVER:
Travel through the ghost-town country of the Pacific Northwest, guided by the camera and pen of Norman D. Weis. Both well known and obscure towns, with intriguing names such as Comeback Mine Camp, Electric, Ruby, Greenback, Disautel, and Old Todora entice you to explore their secrets.
The author has given you a head start in your quest, having explored new angles for information on some of the more familiar ghost-towns, or visiting with old-timers for an offbeat story or two. The enigmas of lesser known areas are unraveled as Weis tells how he located each place, and conducted his on-site study of remains to decipher the town's reason for existence and the cause of its demise.
Norman's interviews with old-timers--always interesting, occasionally factual, and consistently humorous--are sprinkled throughout the book. One told of a dredge in Atlantic City that rejected nuggets "bigger than a walnut." Another bemoaned the building of a five-story hotel in Yellow Jacket, finally completed the same year the mines played out. Then there was the meat house in Sheridan Mine Camp, built around a large tree stump which served as a built-in chopping block. Where these yarns disagree with history, both sides are told, that the reader may make his own determination.
A photographic artist, the author's appreciation for humor, history, and beauty are disclosed in the scores of pictures included in the text.
Armchair traveler, four-wheeler, or trail-bike enthusiast: Ghost Towns of the Northwest will be a congenial companion on your next adventure.
