Reading a book is like taking a journey … you never know where it’s going to take you! Delve in, and let the adventure begin!


No passport needed to visit this Holy Land–it’s right here in New Mexico. Long called theshrines_and_wonders500 “Holy Land of America,” this is land is like no other: inexplicable miracles, a weeping statue, prophecies and revelations, and rock formations that resembles scenes right out of the Bible. But holy doesn’t mean stuffy! Legends never are!

The spiritual adventure begins in Santa Fe–Spanish for “Holy Faith”–and then wends
north and makes two loops: one through the Sangre de Cristo (Blood of Christ) Mountains, the other into Red Rock Country. You’ll visit more than 25 holy sites (illustrated by 75 photos), including historic El Santuario de Chimayo, known as the Lourdes of America, and the stunningly beautiful Monastery of Christ in the Desert.

May you sense the divine as you travel this hallowed land and follow in the footsteps of many holy people–even a canonized saint. Who is it? Join the pilgrimage and find out!

Marion Amberg has provided to the American pilgrim a wonderful guide to the many sites in and around Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico — sites that have been revered for ages as places where God and the saints are especially close to us. The tradition of spiritual pilgrimage is one that thrived in Europe, but found a natural home among the people of the Southwest. This book lovingly shares with its readers the history and spirituality of many of the most important pilgrim shrines in Northern New Mexico and encourages us all to leave home and be pilgrims in our own homeland. — Fr. Kevin A. Codd, author To The Field of Stars: A Pilgrim’s Journey to Santiago de Compostela
