Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In contrast, Scott's tour from Chicago to Santa Monica on the fabled Route 66 is a rich history of the minutiae of a string of motels, diners, and gas stations built to serve the streams of tourists and migrants who headed west to the golden climes of California. Concentrating on the basics of who built which buildings in the little roadside towns, now mostly bypassed by the new interstate highways, Scott also provides a large black-and-white photo of each building. Unfortunately, the photos vary widely in quality, and the attempt to provide a complete graphic record dilutes the artistic impact of the book. Both books are well suited to academic architecture collections, while public libraries along the old Route 66 will enjoy Scott's book.DDavid McClelland, Philadelphia

16 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Michael L. Ward on July 28, 2000
Format: Hardcover
While in a different vein than her previous book about Route 66 (Route 66: The Highway and Its People) Quinta Scott has successfully captured the feeling and vision of what Route 66 has become to many -- the soul of America. Her black and white photographs, some taken in the early 1980s, some taken in the late 1990s, depict an essence of nostalgia toward "The Mother Road" that is just now being widely realized amongst a cross-section of America. State Route 66 Associations have been working together to preserve and protect this long ribbon of a historic monument, and Quinta Scott's book can aid in those efforts. This is your history, America. Read it, look at it, and remember it!

This book will take you winding through the highway with a great view of old time gas pumps, diners. Very well put together, photos by Quinta Scott brings back nostalgia in the best light. Highly recommend, one of a kind.
