The largest and one of the most fascinating counties in the state. Here the footloose and curious may wander past long forgotten towns and abandoned town sites with colourful names, or range through the sweeping desert lands into the remote high country. There is much to hold the passer by; legends of hidden gold and long lost mines, several of them still searched for by close-mouthed treasure hunters and others intrigued by the age old quest for gold. And some of those historic towns of yesterday, places like Wauconda, Nighthawk and old Molson, still stand, silent monuments to the past and little changed in almost a hundred years. Walk through the brooding recesses of McLauhlin's Canyon and along the banks of rivers with lyrical Indian manes, and you still stalk the West of the 19th Century - and THAT'S Okanogan County. 223pp. N.B. Slight crease to spine edge of front cover.
