I have been down Rte. 66, and this book has lots of information that I missed. I am going to have to do it again with this book at my side. Lots of information and pictures in one place to make a Rte. 66 trip more enjoyable. A must have!!

If you ever wanted to make a real journey to a place that's both real and imagined, a place in your heart as much as in your geography, and if that place happens to be Route 66, take this book.
Michael Wallis is the unofficial poet laureate of 66 and this book reflects exactly what the Mother Road meant to America and can mean to you. He's covered every inch of it, and he knows where it leads.

Format: Paperback
MIchael and Suzanne have done the best job of capturing why so many people are still fascinated by a ribbon of concrete that didn't even cross the entire continent. As he so eloquently states, it's not the road, its the people along the road. This is a must read, not just for all Mother Road fans, but for anyone who is interested in a genuine slice of Americana.

Format: Paperback
I read Wallis' original book some years ago and now he has offered us an update. It is now 75 years since the highway numbering system went into effect, and more than ten years since the original book came out. What we get is an extra chapter in the back outlining some of the many changes that have occured in the past decade. Some old friends of the road have passed away; and a whole lot of new ones added. One gripe. We don't hear how Angel and Juan in Seligman are doing these days. Experienced 66 hands will know who I mean--the rest of you, make sure you find out about those two fine gentlemen. This, new, book will help you on your way. Highly recommended.

A really fantastic book that tellsthe story of this famous road. It'svery well written and the images arewhat I remember as a child riding inmy father's '41 Cadillac with a canvas water bag on the front of the car and a swamp cooler hooked to thepassenger window. Tulsa to Los Angeles was our route on Route 66.Michael and Suzanne Wallis really know their stuff!
