    Book details

From the old gold mining towns of Summit County to today's skiing destinations in Breckenridge, eerie and true tales of life and loss in the Wild West abound. The spirit of mutilated miner William Goodwin is said to haunt Blue River, warning of the dangers lurking below. Some say that the ghost of the widow Sylvia, who died destitute and alone at a boarding house on Main Street, still haunts the building today. Coldblooded killer Dr. Condon took revenge on his stalker and killed the town's favorite barkeeper. Tour guide and author Gail Westwood explores the area's most haunted buildings and introduces the ghastly characters who seemingly never left.

Gail Westwood was born in England and immigrated to the US in 1999. After many previous careers she became an historic walking tour guide, following her fascination with the history of the Wild West. She wrote and developed a ghost tour of Breckenridge in 2010 and now owns and operates Breckenridge Tours. Gail is a member of the Summit Historical Society and a volunteer archivist. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Review Text

  • By Winston Marsalles on December 21, 2015

    I'm a Colorado native and can remember when Breckenridge was just a ski bum town. I really enjoyed this entertaining book because it gave the " haunted history," of Breckenridge. In other words, even if you don't believe in ghosts, you will still enjoy this well written book about the spooky side of Breckenridge. I also liked that the author included modern time ghost stories, that she is a professional tour guide in Breckenridge and that she actually believes in ghosts. Nice photographs, great research and a really fun read! If you are hungry to know more about the haunts of one of Colorado's oldest mining towns, this is a must read!

    I went on the Ghost Tour with Gail and I had to buy her book. I am very happy I did. If you get a chance to go on the tour I would recommend it.

    I live in Breckenridge and I wanted to know more about the history of the community in which I reside. I chose to read it around Halloween, which was fun. I learned a lot and will pay closer attention to the buildings around town that I now know more about! Those who plan to visit Breckenridge might find it a great way to learn about the town as they walk around!
