Ghost Towns of Oklahoma
John W. Morris

Ghost Towns of Oklahoma chronicles a past of our state that is quickly disappearing and exists only as a ghost memory. It takes you away from the usual path and immerses you in the spirit and terrain of people and places nearly forgotten. As a visual person, I love to look at pictures, maps, and diagrams, and this book clearly traces the back roads and interesting spots we’d otherwise pass by. Many of the old towns have nearly blown away, but Ghost Towns of Oklahoma helps to ensure that we won’t forget them.
