The American Southwest has many ghost towns and most of them are gone forever. But Cerrillos, New Mexico--a short drive from Santa Fe--isn't one of them. Even though the excitement and "Wild West" crowds no longer make this little town the hub of activity it once was, there still exists the atmosphere of the 1800s and plenty of colorful people to make Cerrillos appealing to anyone interested in western history and traditions. This book guides the reader through the history and up to the present of a town that refuses to be a ghost.
