The definitive, fully illustrated state-by-state atlas of the shifting alignments, historic sites, and current points of interest along the United States' beloved Route 66.

Route 66 changed immensely in the six decades between its opening in 1926 and its removal from the U.S. highway system in 1985. Since that time, Route 66 has enjoyed a renaissance, and interest in America's Mother Road as both a historical byway and a travel destination continues to grow.

In this unprecedented volume, prolific Route 66 author Jim Hinckley presents an illustrated Route 66 atlas that explores the road's history from its inception into the present day. The Illustrated Route 66 Historical Atlas is highlighted by more than a dozen specially commissioned maps that include

  • points of interest along or near Route 66, divided into six categories:
  • pre-1926 historic sites (such as Lincoln's home and presidential library)
  • noteworthy landmarks; the locations of infamous crimes and disasters
  • parks of interest; key sites in Route 66's evolution (such as Hooker's Cut, Missouri, an engineering marvel when completed)
  • military-specific sites (including Civil War battlefields and POW and internment camps)
  • historic attractions from the road's midcentury heyday (such as Little Beaver Town and Geronimo's Trading Post)
  • film-related sites, locations important to Route 66's modern resurgence.
Illustrated with photography and memorabilia in addition to the maps, The Illustrated Route 66 Historical Atlas is a unique, colourful, and visually dynamic look at 500 of the Mother Road's most significant sites from the past and today.
