"Ghost Towns & Lost Treasures" by Ben Traywick
There is no stretch of country anywhere that has more stories of lost silver and gold mines than that of southeast Arizona and northeast Sonora. There are towns without people and churches without congregations. Ben tells their stories so well that the reader feels as if he can reach out and touch them.
Ghost towns of Cochise County and lost treasures and mines in Arizona and Sonora.
Ben T. Traywick earned 10 battle stars during his tour of duty in the Navy during World War II. He retired as a chemist, having worked in the explosives industry, and moved to Tombstone, Arizona. In 1957, Ben sold his first historical article and has never looked away from his lifelong interest. His first publication in the Tombstone Epitaph came in 1963, paving the road of a writing career that investigates virtually every aspect of that legendary
Wild West town and the persona's of its history. Since then, he has written more than 600 newspaper and magazine articles and has published over 40 pamphlets and books. Ben is the director of the Tombstone Tourism Association and the official town historian.
