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
