The Arizona desert provides splendid examples of ghost towns (Ruby, Duquesne, Courtland) and historic towns (former boom towns that have survived into the 21st century - Jerome, Tombstone, Oatman). Echoes from famous figures from the boom town days,MoreThe Arizona desert provides splendid examples of ghost towns (Ruby, Duquesne, Courtland) and historic towns (former boom towns that have survived into the 21st century - Jerome, Tombstone, Oatman). Echoes from famous figures from the boom town days, such as Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp, can still be heard today. From abandoned sites such as Old Hachita and San Pedro to historic towns that have survived until today (Columbus, Mesilla, Lincoln), New Mexico is rich in old mining, ranching and railroading towns. The ghosts of Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett, John Chisum, and even Pancho Villa, all players in New Mexico history, can be felt in many of the towns. This book examines 42 ghost towns and historic towns in Arizona and New Mexico, and features 117 color photos.
