Ghost Towns of the American West

Come explore a fascinating new collection of Old West legends with Ethan Knightchilde, creator of best documentary award-winner Ghosts of the West: The End of the Bonanza Trail, and author of Ghosts of the West: Tales and Legends from the Bonanza Trail. Ethan debuted this entry of his decades-long ghost town documentary project to a standing room-only crowd of over two hundred at the Niwot Historical Society in 2018. The show sold out the following year at the prestigious Colorado Chautauqua. Unlike books and movies that simply repeat embellished folklore, Ghost Towns of the American West will walk you through a landscape of legends and dramatic nonfiction stories from across the West while keeping one foot planted firmly in the real world. Ethan will share historical and contemporary images and tell stories of discoveries, boomtowns, bust times, and the ultimate fates of the ghost towns of the Old West, including some “inconvenient facts” of history.
