By Kathryn HuelsterDick Huelster



This guide, created for the Three Trails Conference of 2015, tells the history of the El Camino Real, the Santa Fe Trail, and the Old Spanish Trail as they traced their paths across the state of New Mexico. Each trail includes ten sites the reader can drive to. In addition to telling the story of the three trails, the guide provides a state map with a blow-up detail of the Santa Fe area and pinpoint sites to visit.
