With information on a range of topics ranging from the use of tools to forging iron, this volume will be of considerable value to modern blacksmiths and those with an interest in the history and development of blacksmithing. Contents include: "Blacksmith Tools", "Their Preservation", "Bench Tools", "Blacksmith Tongs", "How to Make a Pair of Common Tongs", "Tools for Farrier Work", "A Tool for Holding Plow Bolts", "Wrenches", "Welding, Brazing and Soldering", "Steel and its Uses", "Forging Iron", "Making Chain Swivels", "Plow Work", et cetera.

    Through New Mexico’s Official Scenic Historic Markers we learn about the people, the geological features, and the historical events that have made the Land of Enchantment a place unlike any other. An index to our history, these markers tell an incredible story about our cultures and origins. This revised and expanded edition of Roadside New Mexico provides additional information about these sites and includes approximately one hundred new markers, sixty-five of which document the contribution of women to the history of New Mexico. 
    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 travelers who want to understand more about the landscapes and inhabitants of the state.
