Rout 66 is one of America's most remarkable nostalgic icons. Stories, songs, and fables- funny, heartwarming, and magical- celebrate this legendary roadway.


Wallis (Oilman) has spent some 17 years researching and writing this nostalgic revisiting of a road that more than any other kindled the wanderlust after WWII. It was a route that symbolized long- distance auto travel. Here are some 220 period and contemporary photos (190 in fair to fine color). His text covers the history of the road, the hustlers, the builders, the small businessmen that depended upon 66 to bring the customers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
