Program Description

Event Details

Come explore a fascinating new collection of Old West legends with Ethan Knightchilde, creator of Best Documentary Award-winner "Ghosts of the West: The End of the Bonanza Trail," and author of "Ghosts of the West: Tales and Legends from the Bonanza Trail." Unlike books and movies that simply repeat embellished folklore, this presentation walks the reader through a landscape of legends and dramatic non-fiction stories from across the West while keeping one foot planted firmly in the real world. Historical and contemporary images (and some inconvenient facts) accompany stories of discoveries, boomtowns, bust times, and the ultimate fates of the ghost towns of the Old West.
