Local author Rick Quinn tells tales from the road in his new road trip guide, “RoadTrip America Arizona and New Mexico: 25 Scenic Side Trips” (Imbrifex Books, $24.95).

The new travel guide offers readers: 25 scenic alternative routes off major interstates in Arizona and New Mexico; easy-to read, full-color route maps with points of interest, mileage, and more; up-to-date insider tips for getting the most out of each route and staying safe; and phone numbers, websites and visitor info for parks, attractions, and out-of-the-ordinary lodging and dining.

The guide was researched and written by Quinn, a native Arizonan and adventure traveler, whose road trips have taken him from Tierra del Fuego to Alaska and San Francisco to Washington, D.C.

A photographer, travel writer, and anthropologist, Quinn also is an expert on the topography, history, and culture of the American southwest and how best to enjoy its wonders by automobile.
