This guide to New Mexico's mountains provides information such as location, elevation and relief, ecosystems, archaeology, Native American presence, mining history, ghost towns, recreation, geology, ecology, and plants and animals.
This beautifully illustrated book is more than a guide to the mountains of New Mexico. It includes all prominent mountain ranges and other high points, with their locations, access, major peaks, major attractions, hiking/climbing, water, plants, and wildlife.
This history and guidebook is composed of two parts: first, narratives of the Plains Indian conflicts and, second, directions to battle sites in Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming.
Author Linda G. Harris and photographer Pamela Porter have divided the state into eleven regions comprising seventy ghost towns, from the Santa Fe Trail and Colfax County in the north to the boot heel in the south.
"For those who have visited the area, this book will bring back fond memories of wonderful food and destinations. For those who haven't, it's a great introduction to one of the most amazing parts of Mexico, and a fabulous culinary adventure for all."-- The Austin Chronicle
