Searching for America's past is the subject of this book, along with learning how you can profit financially from such a search. Ghost Town Treasures defines what ghost towns are and tells how to locate them through systematic research. What do you look for specifically after you find a ghost town? The book cites examples and points out what to expect in various locations. Knowing what to look for is vital to any exploration effort. As veteran treasure hunter Charles Garret says, how do you know you've found it if you don't know what you're looking for!
Finally, the book describes precisely how to search ghost towns, abandoned buildings and other deserted locations to learn their secrets and to discover those buried or hidden items of value always left behind wherever people have lived, worked or played. The use of metal detectors is emphasized, but other types of searching are not overlooked.
