Booknotes: Hiking to History

New Arrival:
Hiking to History: A Guide to Off-Road New Mexico Historic Sites by Robert Julyan (Univ of New Mexico Pr, 2016).

"Written for both outdoor enthusiasts and vicarious travelers, Hiking to History describes the historical significance behind these publically accessible sites and includes GPS coordinates to enable readers to find each place. Ranging from the state’s principal Civil War battlefield at Glorieta to the dirt road where a broken wagon wheel led two young artists to settle in Taos in 1898, the scenes provide an up-close experience of the state’s remarkable past." Of the 23 sites examined in the book, one (Glorieta Pass) is directly Civil War-related.
