Hand drawn maps show the locations of major mountain ranges. Stories about treasures, outlaws, hermits, mines, and historic trails paint a portrait of the state's history.

This easy to use guidebook gives readers information about magnificent high altitude rocky peaks where prospectors mined for gold, the stark beauty of desert mountain ranges where Geronimo and Victorio hid from the Cavalry, mountain ranges with mile high cliffs that tower over the Rio Grande valley, and strange volcanic mountain formations that resemble horns or giant pots. Each mountain range has its own history that adds to the appeal of New Mexico as a place to visit. Guide to the New Mexico Mountains, written by the late Dr. Herbert Ungnade, was first published in 1965. His daughter Liesl edited, revised, and expanded the text. Her father's historic photographs are mixed with recent digital images in this 50th Anniversary Edition. Turn the pages and begin your journey into the New Mexico Mountains.
