Ghost Town Gold
History, Reality, Documentary
Unlike get-rich-quick schemers who have felt the fever of a modern-day gold rush, Brit Eaton and Scott Glaves dig for priceless treasures of another sort, and it doesn't require a sluice box or trommel. The Old West aficionados explore dusty ghost towns, abandoned mining camps, industrial graveyards and antiquated farmhouses -- all preserved and primed for picking -- in search of collectible artifacts from a bygone era. The thrill of the hunt drives Eaton and Graves -- who have been collecting and selling western memorabilia for more than a decade -- to old boom-then-bust towns, where the characters they meet are as interesting as the stories behind the relics they find.
