Title: " Boom and Bust -- The Mining Towns "
Host Philip Abbott visits three surviving mining towns. South Pass City in Wyoming, Silver City in Idaho, and Bannack in Montana were all important centers in the late 1800s. Each town has survived because people with curiosity and a sense of history cared to preserve them. And each has its own colorful story to tell of life on the northern Rocky Mountain frontier.
