Boekbeschrijving

Take a road trip down the iconic “Mother Road”! Route 66 tells the stories of this highway's people, legends, and funky roadside attractions.

Part legend, part nostalgia, part working highway, part touchstone to an America of the past, Route 66 is the only road in the United States so fascinating that both Americans and international visitors read about and may never actually travel. Route 66: America's Longest Small Town takes you on a virtual road trip, telling you about the highway's legends, stories, people, and businesses that are the essence of the Route 66 experience.

You will be introduced to the road's past, present, and future, including a nostalgic look at vintage diners, signs, advertisements, and roadside attractions. Featuring all-new photography along the existing and former 2,000-mile route of the highway, this book, from America's foremost Route 66 author, combines the nostalgia of a storied past with the intriguing realities of an evolving present to create an intriguing portrait of the Mother Road of America.
