Long before Interstate highways began skirting the edges of small town America, Route 66 carried millions of travelers between Chicago and Los Angeles. Though the Mother Road was officially de-commissioned as a U.S. highway in 1984, thousands of travelers still drive the 2400-mile two-lane every year.
More than any other highway, Route 66 has a history and an allure that never ceases to draw the adventurous to it. Indeed, Route 66 is very much alive. "Route 66" celebrates the life that America's Main Street leads today. From
Chicago to Los Angeles, author Tim Steil takes you on the ultimate modern road trip, stopping frequently to grab a burger, buy a souvenir, or visit with the people whose lives and stories are the lore of Route 66. (paperback)
