Review Quotes:

As a person who has been haunted and variously awakened by the beauty and mysteries of Ghost Ranch, I applaud this book and its invitation to let stories live beyond their particulars. The history of such a culturally complex place adds to its ongoing richness. "Don't bury the gold," Myers says. "Share it, let it shine." -- Jane Vincent Taylor teaches poetry at Ghost Ranch. She lives, writes, teaches, and makes art in Oklahoma.

Dean Myers' deep love of place truly shines through in Ghosts and Gold. If you love Ghost Ranch too, this is the perfect book for the whole family! -- Sean Murphy, National Endowment for the Arts Fellow, author of The Time of New Weather

I wrote and published Ghosts and Gold: My Story of Ghost Ranch out of my deep gratitude for a place and a mission very close to my heart. In it, I tell the Ghost Ranch story through my eyes, mind, and spirit. Photos I have taken over the years illustrate it. The last time I was at the ranch, I overheard a cell phone conversation in which a man told the person at the other end, “Ghost Ranch was once owned by Georgia O’Keeffe.” Of course, that is not true. But it confirmed to me the importance of telling and retelling the ranch’s story.

In 40 pages, Ghosts and Gold conveys the essential elements of Ghost Ranch’s saga from over 200 million years ago to the present. I wrote it to be read by a wide range of readers, to be enjoyed by families, and to be treasured as a memento. I hope it also encourages people who have not yet visited the ranch to make the journey, so they can see and feel its spirit themselves.

Ghosts and Gold is my gift to Ghost Ranch. In that spirit, I am giving to the ranch all proceeds I receive as its author. Buy a copy, and you give to Ghost Ranch, too! I hope you enjoy my story of Ghost Ranch. Thank you for joining in my expression of gratitude. Please visit my blog at keithdeanmyers.blogspot.com.
