This is the definitive book on the most famous road in America - Route 66. The paperback edition of the book was published to celebrate the highway's 66th Anniversary. The vision began in the 1920's with a dream of a highway to connect Chicago to Los Angeles and the West. By completion, the road would cover 2,400 miles, 3 time zones, and eight states. It became a road of dreamers, drifters, and writers. The road of Steinbeck, Guthrie and Kerouac. Dotted along the way were ice-cream stands, "no-tell" motels, truck stops and neon allure. After 17 yrs of research, the author Michael Wallis has compiled the definitive book encompassing everything Route 66. Rich with details, photos, reminiscences it weaves together a tapestry of 8 decades of life on Rout 66.
