  1. Recently a small tour guide book of Las Vegas, NM was accepted by a publisher. Las Vegas boomed in great part due to the Santa Fe Trail. I would like to use a photo of a wagon train going up a grade on the Santa Fe Trail. How do I get permission?

  2. Dear Kathy and Dave:So glad I came upon your website – a joy to read all that information
    concerning the history of our country. I wish it were part of our schools’ curriculum.
    I am a 97-year-old immigrant from Brazil who came here at the age of 21 and eventually merged into the mainstream, became a lifetime journalist and am now an author of books, since hitting my 80s. Working on my seventh book ( main theme immigration), a personal memoir. While I am not planning on reprinting any of the content from your articles, as written, I wish to credit your site as a great reference source.How should I do this? Perhaps in my Acknowledgment Page? Please advise, and congratulations to both for a great service. Keep it up.
    P.S. This book is a toughie to write and may only be ready for publication in 2020. Hopefully, I will live that long. Evelyn De Wolfe (

    1. Thanks for reaching out and with the kind words Evelyn. Credit lines for our website typically are “ – Traveling through American History since 2003.” All the best on your book project!
