“A wonderfully descriptive text and gorgeous photographs. . . . the book is more than an historical account of an ancient road: it is a diary of modern-day explorers in love with the Camino Real, the Royal Road."
Texas Books in Review

The Bloomsbury Review

“The photos in this book are so incredible . . .The small stories on the settlements are fascinating. . . A wonderful gift, and addition to any library, or a spectacular coffee-table book for anyone interested in the Southwest.”

“A beautiful book.”
Southwest Mission Research Center

“This engaging book, beautifully illustrated and written, traces the route and history of El Camino Real, the great road north from Mexico City to the distant provincial capital of Santa Fe. The author and photographer examine this exceptional artery of overland commerce, giving us a remarkable portrait of an unfamiliar but unforgettable slice of our continental history. It will be welcomed by all who seek to know our Hispanic past.”
Historian Marc Simmons
