Montana Mining Ghost Towns

by Barbara Fifer

photography by Larry & Vivian Roland

published by Farcountry Press

  • The stories that come out of Montana's mining frontier are as varied as the people who created what became its ghost towns.

    Few people get to see these remote places in person the way photographers Larry and Vivian Roland have. They share 250 of their rich color photographs of landscapes, townsites, homes, stores, mining structures, closeup details, and more.

    Seventy-seven historical black-and-white images, as well as newspaper quotes and anecdotal text, help tell the stories of thousands of hard-working pioneers, those who preyed on them, and a few larger-than-life characters bringing the past back to colorful life.
