Book Description

March 1 2010

For centuries, the stunning panoramas of Arizona and New Mexico served as the backdrop for a veritable cavalcade of human history. From Anasazi cities built within towering canyon walls to early outpost villages of an expanding young nation, the Southwest served as the home to a range of communities that first thrived and ultimately demised in the region's rugged, sprawling landscapes. Today, the Southwest lures visitors with its majestic natural scenery and links to a fascinating chapter in our nation's history. In Ghost Towns of the Southwest, Jim Hinckley and Kerrick James present the colorful stories, colorful characters, and colorful landscapes that bring to life these landmarks of our past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you want to go explore the Southwest May 16 2010
By Gene Bowker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had the chance to read Ghost Towns of the Southwest: Your Guide to the Historic Mining Camps & Ghost Towns of Arizona and New Mexico by Jim Hinckley and Kerrick James recently.

I've always loved the Old West and Ghost Towns. As a kid growing up in California, I was able to visit a few of the famous ones with my mom such as Tombstone, Arizona.

The book is organized is to regions of Arizona and New Mexico with several sites to visit in each region. This make it perfect for roadtrips as you can base yourself in the larger area and then drive to the various sites during the day, or camp out.

Jim Hinckley does a great job of describing the history of the site along with information about what remains and the accessibility of the sites. A lot of these places are way in the middle of nowhere, so heed his warnings about high-clearance cars or 4x4's to reach them.

Jim also wrote Route 66 Backroads and Backroads of Arizona which are Bibles for planning roadtrips out west. He also writes a blog about life on Route 66 in Kingman which is worth a read.

Kerrick James photographic work has been seen magazines such as Arizona Highways and National Geographic Adventurer. He also conducts classes on photography, which from his work in this book I wish I could attend. Kerrick has a great way of showing the desolation of the abandoned mining sites and ghost towns which make the book worthwhile just as a photo essay. His website [...] includes many great shots and also links to his classes.

Ghost Towns of the Southwest is a great book from Voyaguer Press and will make you want to make a Southwest road trip soon.

1.0 out of 5 stars First impressions... Oct. 7 2012
By jalcruces - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
My first impressions after viewing this book were the erroneous locations of some towns... How is Magdelena - south and White Oaks - Central, when Magdelena is more Northerly than White Oaks?? I'll let you know if it gets any better...from there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide to AZ. and NM Ghost towns Aug. 17 2014
By Bill A - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good and accurate information on Arizona and New Mexico ghost and almost ghost towns. If you like to visit ghost towns you get accurate directions and an idea of what remains to be seen. If you read it just for the history or use it as a guide book for to explore these towns of the past it is a worthwhile and informative book.
