Synopses & Reviews
New Mexico has a sense of uniqueness - and not merely for its distinctive landscape. It is, in many ways, an anomaly: it has its own cuisine, architecture, fashion and culture, all of these resulting from a long and intriguing history and a mix of cultures from Native Americans to Spanish to Anglos. Fodor's Compass American Guide to New Mexico captures this wonderful region through stunning colour photography, cultural essays and historical detail. This completely updated edition also features coverage of the latest local trends and top spots. Stay in adobe B&B's and haciendas, mountain lodges, Route 66 motels and riverside cabins. Dine in small town cafes, chic restaurants, steak houses, and chilli joints, and explore everywhere on driving and walking tours from Santa Fe's plaza and the High Road to Taos, to ancient pueblos and mining ghost towns. With useful maps and background information this guide has everything you need for a great visit to New Mexico.
