Title

Ghosts of the Adobe Walls

Description

The chapters, forty of them, usually cover more than one ghost or near-ghost town, some of which have attracted new residents since Murbarger’s day; they are small but most of the ghosts have gone into hiding to avoid the tourists. Murbarger was a diligent researcher, so her stories don’t just relate the dates, names, mineral values, etc. Instead, she brings in personality by interviewing oldtimers and recounting events reported in contemporary newspapers when these towns were booming.
