Fine in Wraps: binding square and secure; text clean. Virtually 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 4to. 88pp. First Ed thus; unstated. Paperback: Pictorial Wraps. Don Baker has put together a handsome book dealing with ghost and near-ghost towns located in the eastern half of Montana. He begins with an in-depth chapter on the influence of the railroads on settlement, and then a short chapter each on homesteading, ethnic communities, pioneer politics, and a couple of poems about places lost to time. Then comes the main part of the book: an alphabetical listing of the towns, from Aldridge to Whitlash. Descriptions of each town and usually a photograph are included (there is usually something still standing in these town worth seeing). The only thing missing are maps - there are none (most place-names are still listed on recent detailed highway maps, however, but not all; DeLorme's Montana topo map book is useful). I had a chance to use this book this summer on a trip to Montana and found it to my liking. Well done!. Bookseller Inventory # 41580
