    I was really wowed by Philip Varney and his Ghost Towns of the Mountain West but this book for me did not have the same wow factor. I feel that the descriptions of the towns could've been much better and the history better researched. Also the photos for me were nowhere near as good as Varney's which is surprising since James has a degree in photography. He seems more interested in using different effects and photographing the same thing from different angles where as Varney just snaps whats the I was really wowed by Philip Varney and his Ghost Towns of the Mountain West but this book for me did not have the same wow factor.

He seems more interested in using different effects and photographing the same thing from different angles where as Varney just snaps whats there and lets the photos speak for themselves. Some towns didn't even have one photo to support what still exists there. In future I think I'll be sticking with Philip Varney.

    As someone who reads many books about ghost towns in America, I thought that this book was worth more than the two stars many gave it. While it could have been better researched, I very much enjoyed the photography and it was packed with some interesting tidbits. This is a good start for those who seek out ghost towns and need to know where to begin.
