I liked it so well I wanted to own a copy. $8.95 with shipping from Amazon and I don't have to enjoy this wonderful book while sitting around the library.

Simple, yet sublime. The expansive, mostly empty beauty of the Santa Fe Trail wouldn't rate high on most people's scenic trip list, but to me there's a quiet, brutish elegance to this 1,000-mile stretch of American History.

In the introduction the author, the late Gregory Franzwa, eclectic scholar and jack of many trades, recounts an abridged history of the trail, which reads like a travelogue going from Old Franklin, Missouri to Santa Fe, New Mexico via the Cimarron Cutoff and then returning via the Mountain Branch route. The rest of the book, the majority of it, consists of a Santa Fe Trail overview told in majestic black and white photos, all taken in the late 1980s specifically for this publication.
