... I've travelled Route 66, or as Woodie Guthrie called it, 'The Freedom Highway'. I can feel the mud in my fingers, taste the beer, hear the songs, smell the rooms and, most importantly, feel a part of the rich history of Route 66 by meeting those who still live on it, or near it. Antonson's book is a reminder again of how to travel; with all senses ready to experience anything around the next corner. Just keep eyes, heart and arms wide open to those experiences, for there's much to be learned about the past, and ourselves, by taking journeys like this. Thanks for the trip Mr. Antonson. I look forward to your Timbuktu book.
