Wild Guide - Passport to New Mexico Wilderness, Second Edition is out now! This comprehensive guide to New Mexico's protected wildlands is the only book that features each of the state's designated wilderness areas and wilderness study areas as well as other treasures such as the Rio Grande del Norte and Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks national monuments. This second edition has been updated to include New Mexico's 13 new Wilderness areas, which were established in March 2019 when a federal public lands package became law!

Part hiking guide and part reference book,"Wild Guide: Passport to New Mexico Wilderness" can help you discover our best public lands. The book replaces the Wilderness Alliance's annual publication and is an update of the out-of-print "New Mexico Wilderness Areas: The Complete Guide" by Bob Julyan.
