Boek cover Get Your Pics on Route 66 van Joe Sonderman (Paperback)
Postcards from America's Mother Road
Route 66 is arguably the most famous road in America. But Route 66 is not just a road. Roads take travellers to their destination, while Route 66 is a destination. It is for those who find that the journey is at least half the fun. This book is a joint effort from American author and collector Joe Sonderman and Italian publisher and editor Paolo Battaglia. Sonderman's huge postcard collection and his personal memories and researches are displayed through a visual method that Battaglia developed through ten years of experience as director of a very unique Italian photo and postcard museum. In...

Boek cover Route 66 in Illinois van Joe Sonderman (Onbekend)
Route 66 goes through the heart of Illinois: between the great cities of Chicago and St. Louis, there are 300 miles of adventure, history, culinary delights, and quirky attractions. This is the "Land of Lincoln" and roadside giants. There are cozy motels, cozy diners, and Cozy Dogs. Interstate 55 will speed travelers to their destination, but Route 66 offers something more. It goes through the hearts of the towns, wandering onto old brick pavement far from the roar of the interstate. Historic restaurants like Lou Mitchell's in Chicago, the Palms Grill in Atlanta, and the Ariston Cafe in...

Boek cover Route 66 in Texas van Joe Sonderman (Onbekend)
Route 66 stretches across 178 miles and through seven counties in the Texas Panhandle. To a traveler on Interstate 40, the road may seem like an endless expanse, with the horizon interrupted only by the occasional grain elevator. But there is history, scenery, and adventure waiting on Route 66, which follows the trail of the Native Americans, conquistadors, cattle and oil barons, cowboys, and Dust Bowl refugees. With such sites as the blazing neon sign at Shamrock�s U-Drop Inn and the quiet ruins of Glenrio, Route 66 in Texas is still �The Main Street of America.� The traveler who...

Boek cover Route 66 in Kansas van Joe Sonderman (Onbekend)
There are only 13.2 miles of Route 66 in Kansas, but the Sunflower State packs in as much history and adventure per mile as any of the eight Route 66 states. Route 66 in Kansas includes the wild tales from the days of "Red Hot Street" and the "First Cowtown in Texas." Blood was spilled here during the Civil War and when workers in the mines fought for their rights. Travelers will meet a beloved character from the motion picture Cars, cross a rare Rainbow Bridge, and see classic scenes along the Main Streets. Kansas was completely bypassed and was not even mentioned in the Bobby Troup song...

Boek cover Route 66 in the Missouri Ozarks van Joe Sonderman (Hardcover)
Route 66 in the Missouri Ozarks picks up the journey west where its companion book, Route 66 in St. Louis, leaves off. As Bobby Troup's song says, Route 66 travels "more than 2,000 miles all the way." But one would be hard-pressed to "Show Me" a more scenic and historic segment than the Missouri Ozarks. The highway is lined with buildings covered with distinctive Ozark rock. It winds through a region of deep forests, sparkling streams, hidden caves, and spectacular bluffs. This book will take the traveler from Crawford County to the Kansas line. Along the way, there are small towns and urban...

Boek cover St. Louis van Joe Sonderman (Onbekend)
Bridges, Highways, and Roads
Every street has a story. From the humblest cul-de-sac to the roaring interstates, the roads tell the stories and reveal the character that make each neighborhood unique. St. Louis was born of the great rivers, so its bridges played a crucial role. Together, the names of the roads tell the history of the child of the rivers that became the Gateway to the West. There are the stories behind the French street names pronounced in a uniquely St. Louis manner, the names purged from the map during World War I, and the histories behind the pioneers, politicians, developers, and everyday people who...

Boek cover Route 66 Then and Now (R) van Joe Sonderman (Hardcover)
The 'Mother Road' or the 'Will Rogers Highway' has been open since 1926. Its heyday was the WWII and post-war era and many roadside structures sprang up to cater for the tin-can tourists making the journey from East to West. Gas stations, motels, and diners all had to compete for business and what better way to attract attention than with a wacky feature such as a wigwam motel, an iceberg cafe, or a whale-themed diner. Route 66 Then and Now revisits some of these bizarre (and not-so-bizarre) structures to see what's left before time takes its toll. Some, such as the Magnolia Service...
