Offbeat New Mexico: Places of Unexpected History, Art, and Culture

Offbeat New Mexico guides you through the people, places and events that have shaped the state often referred to as the "Land of Enchantment." The art and architecture that helped shape New Mexico may have started with petroglyphs, kivas and ancient cities but it's also alive and well in street art on the current walls of Albuquerque as well as the half-mile of sophisticated gallery art in Santa Fe known as Canyon Road. Offbeat New Mexico was written for the independent traveler who doesn't want to follow the paths most taken by tourists but instead wants to explore what made New Mexico, well, New Mexico. We won't tell you where to eat or sleep but we will tell you about the United States' "Mother Road" (better known as Route 66,) the Navajo Long Walk and why the little town known as Hot Springs changed its name to Truth or Consequences.
