9780312040499: Route 66: The Mother Road

Route 66 was the road of dreamers and ramblers, drifters and writers, the road of John Steinbeck, Woody Guthrie, and Jack Kerouac. After 17 years of research, Wallis presents the definitive chronicle of Route 66, from its founding to its interstate-induced demise to its current revival.

About the Author:

Michael Wallis is the award-winning author of Route 66: The Mother Road, Pretty Boy, Oil Man and The Real Wild West among several others. Born in the 66-town of St. Louis, Wallis now lives in Tulsa, Oaklahoma, a short distance from the Mother Road.

Review:

“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
