Some Dreams Die is the most comprehensive guide to Utah's ghost towns ever assembled. In the course of his research the author visited the sites of over four hundred deserted communities, and probed their unique histories. Some lay within sight of present-day cities, others are chance-encountered clump of cottonwood beneath whose boughs the plans and dreams of now forgotten people are remembered in weathered clapboard barns, corrals, and homes. Each is carefully described and located, making it simple for the reader to retrace the author's steps and visit these monuments to perseverance, gumption, faith, greed, and foolishness. 120 photographs and 12 detailed regional maps make it the most useful book of its kind.
