"Visiting the Ageless Wild West Boomtown Mining Days and Striking it Rich" Winthrop, Washington – Back in the glory days, gold was $21 per ounce; now, the price of gold is $1,641 per ounce. There was more gold left behind than was taken out. Today, it’s mainly a mother lode of memories; however, Jerry Smith states, “There’s still gold in them-thar hills!” Just when you thought that striking-it-rich was impossible, comes a fresh, new updated and revised book transporting one back in time to the boomtown days of yesteryear. Bring back to life the ageless Old West mining-era of prosperous boomtowns, miners, prospectors, pioneers, desperados, and million-dollar gold and silver mines, all with one book. Boom Towns & Relic Hunters crew is composed of a diverse team including experts from specialties in GPS navigation, high-tech computerized metal detectors, gold recovery, adventure seekers, and cultural historians. Along with his crew, Jerry shows you the way to some of Washington’s most picturesque, abandoned sites whose yesteryears were as colorful as they were lively. Experience first-hand the excitement of historic ghost towns such as Gold Hill, Silver, Ruby, and Nighthawk. Go back to the legendary boot hill grave site of famed desperado Frank Watkins, and million-dollar mines like the Montana, First Thought located by Jerry’s team of experts. Probe the secrets of these unprecedented “time capsules” as well as the clues they offer to extraordinary pioneer and mining days dating back over one-hundred years. If you are looking to strike it rich, this is the book for you!
