Route 66: Traveller's Guide and Roadside Companion - Tom Snyder
A very useful book with plenty of interesting stories and features. Celebrating the history and current revival of a great American highway, the author paints a vivid portrait of life on Route 66, and the people who haunt it, including cattle rustlers, gangsters, hitchhikers, and everyday travellers. Considered by many to be a must-have book for the glove-box.
Now, more than 20 years after the original publication of "Route 66", this completely updated and expanded version will make the trip along the Mother Road easier and even more exciting. Responding to requests from readers and travellers, Snyder offers up-to-date routings, elegant and easy-to-read new maps, and revised information on roadside attractions.
