Abstract:

Ghost towns: Looks at the history of the American gold rush, the men who rushed West after visions of riches, and the towns and banks, general stores, boarding houses, and saloons they built and filled with prospectors, hustlers, gamblers, and outlaws. Visits 11 ghost towns left behind: Coloma, Calif., Grass Valley, Calif., Murphys, Calif., Virginia City, Nev., Sutro, Nev., Bodie, Calif., Buckskin Joe, Colo., Lake City, Colo., Bannack, Mont., Vulture City, Ariz., and Mogollon, N.M.

Stories of America's historic inns: Examines the people and places where much American history occurred through visits to inns, taverns, and stagecoach stops that once housed historical figures from Revolutionary War heroes and Western desperadoes to luminaries like Jack London, Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh, and John F. and Jackie Kennedy. Stops in at St. Francis Inn, St. Augustine, Fla., Robert Morris Inn, Oxford, Md., Beekman Arms, Rhinebeck, N.Y., Red Lion Inn, Stockbridge, Mass., Stillman's Inn, Galena, Ill., Monmouth Plantations, Natchez, Miss., St. James Hotel, Cimarron, N.M., Wolf Creek Tavern, Wolf Creek, Or., and San Ysidro Ranch, Montecito, Calif.
