New Mexico Route 66 on Tour: Legendary Architecture from Glenrio to Gallup

Don J. Usner

This travel narrative goes beyond the roadside neon, using architecture as a means to explore Route 66 history in New Mexico in four lively driving tours. For any Route 66 buff or traveler who wants an interesting look at New Mexico, this book takes a fresh look at its well worn subject—America's Mother Road.


Don J. Usner was born and grew up in New Mexico. He earned his BA in biology and environmental studies at the University of California and his MA in cultural geography at the University of New Mexico. His books include Sabino's Map: Life in Chimayó's Old Plaza and Benigna's Chimayó: Cuentos from the Old Plaza.

Elmo Baca is a former New Mexico state historic preservation officer.
