Frisco and the ten mile canyon
PRLog - Sep. 19, 2011 - MT. PLEASANT, S.C. -- New from Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America Series is Frisco and the Ten Mile Canyon. The 128-page book written by Sandra F. Mather, PhD and the Frisco Historic Park & Museum presents a photographic journal of the history of days gone by. The book releases on Monday, September 19, 2011.

Frisco and the Ten Mile Canyon tells the story of the once-thriving railroad town that served as the gateway to the towns and mines of the Ten Mile Canyon. Beginning in 1879, mines produced silver, gold and other minerals while experiencing the usual boom and bust cycles. With the slow, painful death of mining and the curtailing of rail service, Frisco and nearby towns suffered. While the towns in the canyon became memories, Frisco experienced a rebirth and revitalization when the recreational landscape and economy replaced that of the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Highlights of Frisco and the Ten Mile Canyon include:
•   The Utes: The First Inhabitants
•   Frisco: The Town and Its People
•   Towns of the Ten Mile Canyon: Gone But Not Forgotten
•   Mining in the Ten Mile Canyon: All That Glitters Is Not Gold
•   Roads and Railroads: The Transportation Network
•   Agriculture: A High-Altitude Enterprise

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-313-2665 or www.arcadiapublishing.com.
