Editorial Reviews

"Like others before him, from John Steinbeck to Charles Kuralt, Michael Wallis went on the road in search of America. The result is...a colorful paean to a most romantic byway." -The New York Times"Since the do-gooders abolished public hangings, the only show in town worth watching is the traffic on Highway 66 heading West, and Route 66: The Mother Road is the best book we have to tell us what we are seeing." -Stanley Marsh III, owner of the Cadillac Ranch, Amarillo, Texas"This story of our nation's most famous highway keeps alive an important part of American history. It's a delight!" -Will Rogers, Jr."Route 66 changed the course of my whole life. I will treasure my trip forever, and this book recaptures very vividly every memory." -Bobby Troup, songwriter of "(Get Your Kicks on) Route 66""Any of you who love nostalgia will love Route 66: The Mother Road as much as I do." -Tony Hillerman"A love letter to the road...{Wallis} wraps the history of the route around pictures of it and lets the people who have traveled and lived along the Mother Road tell their stories." -Kelli Pryor, Entertainment Weekly
