Route 66, the Highway and its People

“The Road that Ran through Everyone’s Life”

“This very readable history of the world’s most famous road is told through the words and pictures of men and women who made their livings on the edge of that highway from the 1920s until the coming of interstates in the mid-1950s.”

The Wall Street Journal called it

“The Road that Ran through Everyone’s Life”

Route 66 doesn’t ignore the names and dates and political decisions of traditional history. But its appeal lies in the graceful way it explores the impact of that long black ribbon on the lives of the people who lived beside it and in the book’s explanation of how US 66 became a highway the country could not forget.”

Wall Street Journal, 2/8/1989
