    This is the OTHER Ghost Town book I have. Use this one as a primer. It lists all the well known sites with clear directions and so-so background. There are many more, and in my opinion more interesting, ghost towns not included in this book. There is nothing wrong with this book—it just need to be more comprehensive.

    Some pretty interesting stories about New Mexico during the 1800s. Glad I didn't live there at that time.
