How did you find Legends of America? Looking up the Cowboy Code
I have much respect for the proverbs and sayings of wisdom. My mother's family was Cherokee and my father's family was Yaqui. I have much respect for American Indians. Thank you for a wonderful site.

I am conducting college research paper in American Indian history and I came across this site. There seems to be some great information here I can use to establish supported documentation for the reader.

I am offended that you choose to call Brookville, Kansas a ghost town.....the old grade school is a private residence and has been for years.....there is a city mayor, several active churches a beautiful junior and senior high school with every sport available, there is a Senior Citizen Group that meets for a meal monthly, a Rebeka Lodge for women and a Lyons Club for men...the Lyons club holds a pancake breakfast and soup lunch as fundraisers yearly...also Labor Day weekend at Brookville is full of activities, parade, rodeo, games in the park and a dance in the evening ......A Ghost town, not by a long shot, unless the meaning of ghost town has changed....the residents of Brookville are proud of their town, with new homes built within the last 10 years and older homes kept up......maybe it's time for another visit to Brookville, Kansas
Editor's Response: While we appreciate your position, I would like to point out that we don't call Brookville a "ghost town", we say it is an 'almost' ghost town. From our article, we state "though Brookville continues to support a population of about 250 people, we could find no open businesses other than the post office when we were there in 2009. Today, it has become mostly a bedroom community to Salina commuters. This almost ghost town is well worth a visit to check out its unpaved and dusty streets and lined with sandstone buildings and wooden storefronts that look very much like they did over a century ago. Its beautiful two-story stone school, last used in 1996, continues to stand."

Also, you should understand what some consider to be ghost towns. From our article http://www.legendsofamerica.com/gt-ghosttownethics.html
"Basically, a ghost town is any historical town or site that leaves evidence of a town's previous glory. This could be in many forms -- all businesses closed, municipal services at a minimum, rubble and old nails strewn about, ruins of former buildings, etc. Some places that are categorized as ghost towns; however, still have people living in them and though sometimes they don't want to be called a ghost town, most historians will continue to reference them that way if the reason or purpose for it's original "boom" is gone."
Not a bad thing. Just trying to find out more about my people.

How did you find Legends of America? Theres a black bear living in my back yard, so I was googling information on BLACK BEAR & HUMAN safty info. The National Forest Service had a link to your site and, well HERE I AM!
I live in a rural area at the base of Mt. Rainier's west slope, I am privileged to see the Elks head looking out at us on any clear day. I fell in love with the areas brilliant beauty and vivid colours in every season, its a nature lovers dream. There have been many unexplainable occurences all around the area, theres definetly a powerful vibrational frequency enimating from the deep moutain canyons and glacier rivers and streams. After all Mt. Rainier is an active volcano, and did you know that great stands of ENORMOUS trees were crushed under tons of hot magma which trapped those great trees for a very long time. As our Earth moves beneath our feet it began to churn up those old trees which had become petrified some trees had actually turned into crystals.
