Bodie was known as a wide-open gold mining town. During its boom days 1860-1870, and again from 1876 to 1880, its population exploded to over 10,000 inhabitants. In Bodie's Gold, the author uses a wide range of historic documents and recent interviews with surviving Bodieites to bring the ghost town back to life.
