About the Author
Jim Ross of Arcadia, Oklahoma, is a writer, researcher, and avid Route 66 enthusiast who has devoted years to photographing, charting, and exploring the Mother Road and its web of intricate routings. His articles and images have appeared in a wide range of publications, and his book, Oklahoma Route 66, is considered the standard for guidebooks documenting the history of America’s most famous highway. Jerry McClanahan of Corsicana, Texas, has been traveling, mapping and painting America’s Main Street since 1980. Drawing on childhood memories for inspiration, Jerry sees his art as a contribution to the commemoration and celebration of our highway heritage. An accomplished artist and photographer, he is also an “old road” detective of the first order, and his findings from years of research were essential ingredients to this maps series.
