Preethi Burkholder: Ghost Towns of the Rockies
Rocky Mountain ghost towns are filled with chilling but captivating stories from the mining era when gold, silver, coal and clay mining
ruled the Wild West. Horace Tabor, the Silver king of Leadville, CO, was one of the wealthiest people in the United States. When the
price of silver crashed in 1893 Tabor lost all his fortune and was shoveling dirt for $0.65 cents a day. The ghost of Annabelle Stark
is said to haunt the ghost town of St. Elmo, Colorado. Come and listen to these and more juicy tales during author and speaker Preethi
Burkholder's presentation of her book "Ghost Towns of the Rockies.
This Powerpoint presentation will give the audience a virtual tour of ghost towns, accompanied by storytelling. Informative, entertaining, and spooky!"
Autographed copies of "Ghost Towns of the Rockies" available for $20.
