Greetings from Route 66: The Ultimate Road Trip Back Through Time Along America's Main Street [$30.00]

From Chicago to L.A., Route 66 still embodies America’s westward drive. This collection of writing, art, and photography about the “Mother Road”, as John Steinbeck famously coined it, contains over 800 vintage photographs, postcards, travel decals, and other memorabilia. Like the road itself, the book makes numerous pit-stops along the way, highlighting the big cities and small towns that helped make their name off the famous route. Beyond nostalgia (though there is plenty of that), Greetings from Route 66 is a guide book, cookbook, and a social history telling the story of an iconic American symbol in a most engaging fashion.
