About the Author
Route 66 artist and road historian Jerry McClanahan of Corsicana, Texas, has been traveling, mapping, and painting America's Main Street since 1980. Jerry sees his art as a contribution to the commemoration and celebration of our highway heritage. An "old road" detective, his documented trip notes from years of research were essential ingredients to this map series.
Freelance writer Jim Ross is an avid Route 66 enthusiast and preservationist who has spent a decade exploring and charting Route 66 and its web of intricate routings. Dozens of his articles have appeared in a variety of national magazines, and he is the author of "Oklahoma Route 66." He lives on historic Route 66 in Arcadia, Oklahoma.
In 1998, Ross and McClanahan, along with Anderson Productions, produced and co-hosted the documentary Route 66 video, "Bones of the Old Road."
