I've used this slim guide not once but twice when passing through Abiquiu, NM and the surrounding area. It's just what it purports to be -- a guide to what you can see in more or less a day. But, really, if you ever go to "O'Keeffe Country," you find yourself wanting to stay more than a day.

The book is arranged in six driving tours, each with fairly good directions and maps (though last time I used the guide to get to the White Place I realized that there is an easier way to get there than the

Enchanting introduction to O'Keefe Country, even for the armchair traveler. Can't wait to follow this route, although I would do it a more leisurely pace. Would love to see an extended version -- I suspect there's much more to see "offroad." Loved all the quirky spots...from low-riders to sikhs. I am going to read a few of the suggested books. Can't wait to get back to New Mexico with the family and go on this roadtrip.

If this is your first trip through O'Keeffe Country, then this book is a good one to start with. It covers the basics--things you can do in a day--with interesting diversions. Once you have explored the popular tourist destinations like Abiquiu and the Ghost Ranch, you will, no doubt want to find some of the more interesting out of the way places. Let me send you my guide. No, on second thought--let me take you.

This is great for a one day road trip. It covers the well known points of interest. Read it once and never again. Obviously designed for the tourist first time in the region. For me, it missed some of the most interesting things in the Abiquiu, Ghost Ranch area. But still . . . okay for beginners.
It delves more into some sites that are often ignored by most of the other tourist guides...
There absolutely no pictures though, which would have made it way more appealing...
