Overview

Signs & Shrines: Spiritual Journeys Across New Mexico takes readers along the ancient pilgrimage trails that crisscross this enchanted state, a place where a rich multiplicity of cultures continue to thrive.

Editorial Reviews

2012 SATW Foundation Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Awards
This book is unique for several reasons. First, it shows readers how to approach New Mexico through historical and contemporary spiritual traditions. Second, it’s divided into journeys, for instance, with the first chapter focusing on the Old Spanish Trail, a 19th-century trade route between New Mexico and California. Although this particular trail doesn’t have a direct relationship to anything spiritual, the author uses it as a way to highlight historical events and culture clashes such as the detribalization of Indians who were sold as slaves along the trail.

Each journey section has 10 subsections: Guidance: government contact information and emergency numbers. Discover: museums, archeological sites and cultural resources. Recreate: parks, nature walks, outside activities and outfitters. Cherish: shops, galleries, vineyards, special finds. Meander: day trips, attractions. Renew: spas, retreats, meditation centers, etc. Nourish: places to eat. Respite: hotels. Celebrate: festivals, pow-wows, events. On the Town:
entertainment choices. The book is replete with well-composed pictures and some poetry. While the writing is sometimes “dramatic,” the reader will likely appreciate the different approach to travel and the author’s willingness to get into the less-than-pleasant details of the area’s history in a nicely concise manner.
