Format: Paperback
I do a lot of geological work in New Mexico, and have traveled around the state for several years. Robert Julyan has done an excellent job of summarizing the physiography and history of New Mexico's mountains. Also, he's done an admirable job of summarizing the geology of these mountains in a way that is scientifically valid and I think is understandable to the general public. Each section (broken down by mountain ranges and/or individual peaks) includes good information on accessibility. An introductory section on geology and the human history of New Mexico's mountains is very good. Including a detailed reference list was a good idea, and will be helpful for anyone that wants to learn more about specific areas. For these reasons, I highly recommend this book as a reference for anyone that plays and works in these mountains- I wish that similar books would be written for other states!

Unfortunately, I can't give this book 5 stars because of the poor maps and other illustrations. Users of the book will need to pair it with a good atlas of the state for finding their way around.

That being said, this book is a great value.
