Description


A unique, behind-the-scenes look at the iconic places on Route 66 and the stories of the people who conserve them, preserve them, and infuse them with vitality.

The cornerstone of the Route 66 renaissance is the nostalgia that inspires millions of visitors to seek the authentic 1950s-era American experience. Built on this foundation is a quest for adventure, exploration, and discovery.

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 that American and international visitors read about without leaving their homes. Route 66: America's Longest Small Town takes the reader on a virtual roadtrip, telling about the highway's legends, stories, people, and businesses that are the essence of the Route 66 experience.

The reader 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.
