"This is no book, but rather a time machine."--Kansas City Star

"While in a different vein than her previous book about Route 66 (Route 66: The Highway and Its People) Quinta Scott has successfully captured the feeling and vision of what Route 66 has become to many -- the soul of America. Her black and white photographs, some taken in the early 1980s, some taken in the late 1990s, depict an essence of nostalgia toward "The Mother Road" that is just now being widely realized amongst a cross-section of America. State Route 66 Associations have been working together to preserve and protect this long ribbon of a historic monument, and Quinta Scott's book can aid in those efforts. This is your history, America. Read it, look at it, and remember it!"--Michael Ward, on Amazon.com

Along Route 66 looks at architecture of the buildings that lined the roadside of the highway that stretched from Chicago to Los Angeles and tells the stories of the people who built them.

It is a great read-aloud guide book to the old highway. Carry it with you when you make your timely trip down Route 66.

Route66

"[Route 66’s] 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 U.S.66 ’became a highway the country could not forget.’..Today, as this book’s text and photographs emphasize, there’s not much left besides the legend. The two-lane blacktop has crumbled and most of the people who lived beside the old road have moved away or died. But while the new interstates are faster and safer, it is impossible not to miss old Route 66. Fortunately, the words and pictures of this delightful book preserve the memories of a road that ran through everyone’s life."--Wall Street Journal

Route 66 is the very first book on U.S. Highway 66. It tells the story of Cyrus Avery, who routed the highway through his hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Then, it goes on to tell the stories of the people who took advantage of Avery's highway and invented American roadside tourism during in the Twenties, the Great Depression, and after World War II.

It is a classic.
