Fourth Edition —Fully revised and updated with 30 new maps throughout. Right down America's Main Street it rolled, pausing at each town along the way, then moving on, carrying travelers in search of adventure, romance, or that rare chance for a new beginning. Route 66 knew many names: the Mother Road, Will Rogers Highway, the Neon Road. And it lived up to each. Travelers met the land, found new friends—and often themselves. Now, more than a quarter-century since being officially abandoned, the old road still keeps its promise. Today, all along the highway's 2,448-mile length from Chicago to L.A., signs carrying its magic double sixes once again give direction to the journey. Yes, they assure you, this is still Route 66. . . . More than twenty years after the original publication of Route 66, this completely updated and expanded guide will make the trip along the Mother Road easier and even more exciting. Responding to requests from readers and travelers, Tom Snyder offers up-to-date routings, elegant and easy-to-read new maps, and revised information on roadside attractions. Filled with love, high jinks, and mystery, the stories Snyder narrates truly capture the flavor of the Main Street of America. Cattle rustlers, gangsters, hitchhikers, and ghosts all make appearances in these nostalgic glimpses of history-in-the-making along America's most famous highway.

For anyone planning to explore Route 66 - whether from the comfort of an armchair or in 'real time' - this pocketsized guide will be the perfect travelling companion. Starting in Chicago, the book traces each of the 'Mother Road's' 2,200 miles, describing how the road was created, and the transforming effect it had on the places through which it passed. The book offers far more than a comprehensive description of the road's route, principal 'sights' and history, however: it also takes the reader on a fascinating journey through American popular culture. The detailed travel notes and colour photos of landmarks are complemented by colourful, lively features on the cars, the music, the movies, the characters and even the food associated with America's legendary 'Main Street'. The illustrations, meanwhile, include newly commissioned location colour photographs of sights, signs and landmarks along the way. Add a wealth of historic black and whites and new studio shots of memorabilia, artefacts and ephemera and you have a stunning selection of photos that superbly evoke the magic of the road and the spirit of times gone by. As Consultant Paul Taylor summarises in his Introduction. Street'.
