About this book

This handy, beautifully illustrated guide to the mountains of New Mexico includes all prominent mountain ranges and other high points, with their locations, access, major peaks, major attractions, hiking/climbing, water, plants, and wildlife. Photographer and climber Mike Butterfield makes this guide personal -- an enthralling 'guided tour'. His explorations of New Mexico's ranges, combined with a wealth of full-colour photographs, make it a book to fascinate the armchair traveller as well as the serious climber. Author Peter Greene provides detailed information on the mountains and their regions, including geology, life zones, archaeology, and place in the history of the state. A handsome foldout map highlights mountain ranges and peaks, regions, major towns, and roads. Useful appendices include suggested mountain tours by car with a map of routes, peaks ranked by elevation, wilderness areas, national parks and monuments, and state parks and monuments.
