At first glance, this book suggests you’re going to be subjected to another dose of lost gold mines, Indian raids, mysterious ghosts and local adventures like the ones in the last legend and lore book you just read.
Well, you are. Fortunately, Jameson makes his tales so different and readable that you just can’t put this book down. The stories of headless skeletons, buried treasure chests and Spanish conquistadors will have you turning the pages to continue absorbing the history and tantalizing puzzles of this intriguing Texas-New Mexico mountain range. This is a fun, satisfying read that will have you packing up to go explore those haunted hills. —Chuck Lewis
