    Great photo documentation of the ghost town of Jerome, Arizona, now an artist/historical community. Did you know the guy who built the mine was once the richest person in the world? That the town madam offered free lifetime passes to the firemen to save her bordello? There was a miniature golf course in the middle of town and four swimming pools? Lots of fun history and current flavor of the town with photos to help build in the visions of years past. Well-researched and good quality photos.

    Reread notes: Kind of an average Arcadia photo-history. It's OK, but doesn't really pop. I know Jerome well and like it a lot. The book doesn't seem to capture the flavor of the place all that well.It's a great place to visit, on your next northern Arizona vacation. Look to see if the Haunted Hamburger is still going -- they cooked up a righteous burger for all the years I lived in the area.

    Just what we needed as we drove and walked through the town. Lots of neat facts.
