Fritz E. Wolff, Washington State Division of Geology and Earth Resources:
"The time watching Jerry's DVD was well spent, resulting in a top-notch product. In his DVD, Jerry takes you back in time to the Boom Town days of yesteryear and brings to life the ageless Old West mining-era days of Boom Towns, miners, prospectors, and pioneers. Yet, the DVD goes far beyond providing simply a historical account. This includes over 211 outstanding photos and locations from long-lost, famous ghost towns and mines in Northeastern Washington State. The DVD will certainly keep the spirit of the Old West alive and well for many years to come."
