    They are all pretty good but the best are Ghost Towns, Colorado Style by Kenneth Jessen. They are written in three volumes and are full of recent information.

    Ken actually has five volumes now. He released the Plains ghost towns last year and just about a month ago he released this one. "Colorado's Best Ghost Towns"

    Re: 3 Colorado Ghost Town Books - Robert L. Brown

    I have read all three Brown books and have two in my library. But, to me, my favorite book about Colorado ghost towns is "Stampede to Timberline" by Muriel Wolle. Over 500 pages, lots of good stuff, and written in 1949, so with much more information that wasn't available when Brown wrote his books. Wolle also wrote "ghost Cities of Colorado" in 1933, but I haven't been able to find that one.

    I've taken notes on all the ghost towns from each book, put them together, and have more complete notes after reading them all together than any one book would give me. research is something I like doing. Searching is too. :-)

    JRF30 - have you read Ken Jessens books.. ?

    I also have Wolle's, Browns , Eberharts, Byod and Carson and other books, I like all for different reasons. I prefer Jessens when I am going out to look and photograph sites. At least with his I have a good idea what I can expect to find as his are the most recently published. Wolle, Brown and Eberhart and more in depth and historical for me.

    I would really be interested in where Mr. R. Brown lived.
    I have researched this person and it seems he has passed away?
    Any information would be very helpful.

    Kansas maybe . . . can't remember. Those books inspired me to get a Landcruiser and get as
    high in the mountains of Colorado as possible. What a view. One in particular was productive but
    you can't go into details anymore.
