Wyoming’s Grand Encampment by Alan H. Patera

Western Places Volume 11-1

Located just north of the Colorado border, the Grand Encampment was a copper sensation from 1898 to 1908.  A 16-mile tramway was built from the mines to a large smelter at Encampment, and a railway was built.  Six communities flourished and vanished in the Sierra Madre Mountains, including Battle at 10,000 feet.  It’s a most scenic area with a vibrant history, with connections to Rhyolite and the Death Valley area.

Papberback, 66 pages with some great photos.
