Brothers Arthur and David Pike discuss and sign their book on NM's historical sites that are easily accessible via detours down obscure backroads and overlooked off-ramps.



Brothers Arthur and David Pike, both of whom earned Bachelor's degrees at NM State University, will be at Page One Books 3:00 pm Sunday, March 26, to talk about and sign their non-fiction effort, "Detour New Mexico: Historic Destinations and Natural Wonders."

The book is described as such: "New Mexico's rich and varied history is easily accessible via detours down obscure backroads and overlooked off-ramps. By taking the road less traveled in any direction, visitors can experience ancient landmarks, cultural heritage sites and striking vistas. Stop at places along the old Route 66, sample the world's best chiles by the Rio Grande or soak in geothermal water flowing under Truth or Consequences. Ancient dwellings in remote canyons, the town where the first atomic bomb was secretly assembled and the grave of Billy the Kid all lie off the beaten path in the Land of Enchantment. Authors Arthur and David Pike map out these and many more worthwhile points of interest for the curious traveler."

David Pike earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from New Mexico State University and a master's degree in creative nonfiction from Johns Hopkins University. He published an updated version of his comprehensive guide to the historic markers of the state, "Roadside New Mexico," in 2015. The book won the state's Heritage Preservation Award in 2016. His essays on out-of-the-way New Mexico places and people have appeared in "New Mexico" magazine. He currently resides in Albuquerque.

Arthur Pike earned a bachelor's degree in journalism from New Mexico State University as well as a master's degree in technical and professional communication from NMSU. He lives with his family in Houston, Texas, where he manages a communication function for an energy company and writes short- and long-form fiction.

Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank Blvd NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Pike brothers event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit
