The Historical Guide to Utah Ghost Towns

Revised and Enlarged Edition

Stephen L. Carr

Western Epics Publications

Utah

Ghost towns: the shadowy remains of a town’s former life and activity; its houses, schools, and churches left behind, to dry and crumble in the arid winds of Utah. Carr presents more than 150 such sites across the state—towns formed around mines, railroads and agriculture—but nevertheless there remains a nagging suspicion that there are still ancient, forgotten villages lurking in the hills.

Distributed for Western Epics Publishing.


Stephen Carr is the author of Utah Ghost Rails.
