Product Overview

The process of a mining camp's decline is thoroughly examined through the histories of two Western towns that were reinvented as tourist attractions following their days of boom and bust.

The literature of the West abounds with colorful sagas of mining boomtowns that sprang up after the discovery of an important mineral deposit, but the decline of those towns is rarely treated as more than an epilogue to the story. Focusing on two Arizona towns that had their origins in mining bonanzas--Tombstone and Jerome--historian Eric L. Clements offers a rare study dissecting the process of bust itself--the reasons and manners in which these towns declined as the mining booms ended.
