About the Author:

Richard Mangum was born in Flagstaff and has lived there all his life. He well remembers the glory days of Route 66 in Arizona and believes that he has old motor oil in his blood. After graduating from Flagstaff High School in 1954, he became a lawyer, practicing in Flagstaff until 1976, at which point be became a Superior Court Judge. He changed careers in 1993 to become a writer. "It's what I always wanted to do," he says. Sherry moved to Flagstaff when she was seven years old and her parents built a house on the original alignment of Route 66 east of Flagstaff, running from Camp Townsend to Winona. "Since I learned to drive on Route 66 it has a very special place in my heart," she says. She became a photographer whose works have been featured in local to international publications. Together the Mangums research, make the road trips and prepare their books. Their famous guides and histories (nine to date) of northern Arizona have given the Mangums a reputation for producing books that are clear, user-friendly and reliable.
