Ghost Towns of California is a guidebook to the state's best boomtowns. Once thriving, these abandoned mining camps and pioneer villages still ring with history.
Phillip Varney is the author and photographer of seven books about ghost towns. He has toured and photographed more than six hundred ghost towns throughout the American West. He lives in Tucson, Arizona.
“The book cleverly maps out the towns in geographical order and thus makes it easy for people who wish to visit them in some sequential order.” - Huffington Post
