No one today, and not many of the old timers back then, knew Mogollon, New Mexico, as well as H.A. Hoover. His reminiscences begin in 1904, continue through the boom days, and he was still there, keeping a diary, in the 1950's when they started to call Mogollon a "ghost town." The Bloated Goat Saloon was where the old timers gathered and here are some of the best stories they told -- tales of Indians and desperados, mountain lions and mountain men Ben Lilly, the Mogollon Mountains, 24-horse teams, and home life in a unique frontier town.

Review:

A charming and humorous reminiscense from Mogollon -- most famous ghost town in Catron County, most interesting ghost town in New Mexico. -- Grant Luna, Basin & Range Magazine

It is a series of relaxed, intimate glimpses of people, places and events of the past; a past which was almost inaccessible by road and which was absolutely forbidden to a prying stranger with a ready notebook and pencil. -- Francis L. Fugate
