A New Peek at the Old West Country by George Pintar

Chile Charlie takes another trip in New Mexico to learn about the different counties and their history.  This is a fictional story with lots of historical facts.

Sinuate Media shared this book with me so I could write a review (thank you).  The book has been published and you can get a copy now.

When my husband and I moved down here, we visited a lot of ghost towns.  This book has good facts about the growth and development of cities and when the mines ran out, the town died.  This is a handy shot of history in a format that is fun to read.

The counties covered are:  Hildago, Catron, Luna, Grant, and Sierra.  This is a way you can visit this area from your armchair.  I'd recommend a physical visit, though.  Then you can see the facts up close.

There are quite a few museums or history spots you can visit.  We visited the courthouse where they held Billy the Kid for trial.  

This state has lots of history and Mr. Pintar gives you plenty to think about.
