Now structured alphabetically for easier identification, each essay also offers suggestions of similar Historic Markers to help readers explore each topic further. In addition, Pike includes entries on "Ghost Markers"-those sites missing from the road that still impart significant historical lessons. Roadside New Mexico delivers a useful companion for travellers who want to understand more about the landscapes and inhabitants of the state.
