King of the Road

Travelers today seek a deeper experience than what’s offered by most travel guides and tour services. They want to feel like they’re penetrating a culture or a place, thereby finding adventure and gaining new understanding of the world. That’s what the book King of the Road accomplishes. It takes readers to Two Grey Hills to meet Master Weaver Clara Sherman, to the Gallup Flea Market to taste a mutton sandwich and to Lake Roberts to hear the flutter of a hummingbird’s heart. We cruise Raton’s hidden historic district to find relics of railroad history and delve into villages on the edge of the San Pedro Wilderness in search of the ancient Gallina Warriors.
