The "Roadside History" series charts a course to the present through carefully selected and thoroughly researched stories relating what we see today with what happened before. Through vivid anecdotes, old photographs, and maps, the "Roadside History" guides provide entertaining insight into the states they describe.

Each state is divided into geographical and historical regions, and each region is described in the context of highways that pass through it. This "road log" approach helps place modern travelers in the past.

New Mexico's heritage spans more than four and a half centuries. Roadside History of New Mexico brings the state's history to vibrant life.
