The Ghosts of the Lake Fork Region

On the Western Slope of Colorado, in a hauntingly beautiful canyon formed by the sometimes raging, sometimes tranquil Lake Fork of the Gunnison River, ghosts of history linger. From early man; to volcanic activity and the formation of geological wonders; to Native Americans, explorers, trappers, miners, railroad workers, and early pioneers – the booms and busts of this unique and remote area echo through the pages of The Ghosts of the Lake Fork Region. In her well-researched work, Marril Lee Burke, also the author of A Bumpy Ride – A History of Stagecoaching in Colorado, weaves new information with old and provides readers interesting glimpses of the spirit and spirits of this remote canyon cradled quietly by the shining mountains of the “secret” San Juans.
