This is the full and detailed view of New Mexico's Best Ghost Towns by Philip Varney, for which Tony Hillerman wrote the Foreword. Drawings and maps are by G.E. Wolfe. It was published in 1981 by Northland Press in Flagstaff, Arizona.

This is a paperback volume with a reddish-brown paper cover. The title of the book is printed in orange-brown at the top of the front cover.
