Description

In this new collection of Route 66 Lost & Found, journey from Chicago to LA through the history of "America's Main Street," visiting 200+ roadside attractions along the way. Route 66 Lost & Found combines author Russ Olsen's successful Route 66 Lost & Found volumes 1 and 2 and adds more than 50 new sites along the Mother Road not included in the previous editions. First paved in the 1920s, Route 66, one of America's first highways, has been a staple of the American road trip since the Great Depression. It was also a major method of the bootlegging operation. Spanning a total of eight states and stretching from Chicago all the way to the Pacific Ocean, Route 66 was appropriately named the Mother Road. An icon of American folklore, between the pages there are a slew of old gas stations, restaurants, diners, rest stops, and other attractions. Each must-see vestige is peppered with the history of the area. All of the sites featured are reordered from Illinois to California to provide a continuous journey along 66. The maps included in the previous two volumes are updated to feature the locations of the new sites included here. Each profile is accompanied by an archival image of the establishment, a concise capsule history, and modern photography depicting the site as it appears today. So strap on your seat belt and enjoy your up-close tour of the motor courts, cafes, filling stations, and greasy spoons that make up "America's Main Street."
