I love the history of the mining towns, and when I learned Images of America didn't have a book on Silverton, I wrote one. It's called Silverton and the Alpine Loop. It's my first, so be gentle. Order online from Amazon.com

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar,
I love not man the less, but nature more.
