Stephen Pern's account is very engaging, especially his English view of
American ways ("I just knew those cows didn't have names").  Last year I
innocently asked for peoples' experience trying to hike the Animas Range,
which is the Divide up from Antelope Wells.  A minor firestorm ensued, as
this is closed-access land controlled by the Grey Ranch, or at least that is
one point of view.  You can find the thread in the Archives, the key
contributor was DickEBird (Richard Mallory).  Pern eventually buried his
Guidebook and hiked in a more free-form style.
