Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Author Joe Sonderman has assembled hundreds of nostalgic images of Arizona's Route 66 and detailed histories of the attractions found along the way. Many images from his collection of 5,000 vintage Route 66 postcards have never been published before. These pictures of natural wonders, mom-and-pop businesses, bustling main streets, and good old-fashioned tourist traps recall a time when getting there was half the fun. Arizona may be the most spectacular state on Route 66, and the visuals are as stunning as the stories behind them.

By Loyd Eskildson HALL OF FAME on July 18, 2011
Format: Paperback
'Route 66 in Arizona' provides good background on Route 66 sights in Arizona with lots of old period photos. Some old bridges that I've seen are not covered, the coverage of Seligman was inadequate, and there's too many old motels for my taste - however, I appreciated the numerous brief histories that were included. Paving was completed on Arizona's Route 66 in 1937, and its replacement, I-40, was completed in 1984. Scenes from Chambers, Sanders, the Painted Desert Trading Post ('42-'56), Two Guns, Navajo Co. Courthouse (Holbrook), Wigwam Motel ('50), Geronimo Trading Post, Ella's Frontier Trading Post ('27-'84), JackRabbit Trading Post, Las Posada Hotel, Meteor City, Meteor Crater Observatory, Hotel Monte Vista (Flagstaff), Hackberry General Store, Williams, Seligman, the Brunswick Hotel (1909 - Kingman), Hotel Beale (Kingman - 1906), Cool Springs, and Oatman were included - all at least partially remaining today.

If you're a Route 66 lover, then this is another "must have" book. But I was somewhat disappointed that it really only focused on the motels along the road. A lot of the photos are copies of post cards or travel brochures. There were so many other attractions along Route 66 that would have been nice to have included. But what I think was most needed were maps. Joe gives the address of most of the motels, but it really would have been nice to see a map for each chapter showing exactly where along Route 66 the photos were taken. This would have made it more of a book you'd take along with you on your next trip exploring old Route 66 today.

I REMEBER ROUTE 66 BECAUSE OF MY DAD, I HAVE AWESOME MEMORIES. AND PHOTOS OF OUR OWN. MY DADS GONE, AND SO IS A LOT OF OTHER THINGS. BUT ITS GREAT HOW PEOPLE GET TOGETHER WITH THEIR OLDER CARS AND GET THEIR CAR CLUBS GOING AROUND ROUTE 66. I HAD KNOW IDEA THAT THE FREEWAYS THAT WENT BY THEM TO BE IN THIS BIG HURRY AND MISSED THE BEST OF AMERICA.HOW SAD.

All the Images of America are a great way to remember our roots. Sometimes you need to look back to clear the vision of the future.

I have the complete series from Illinois to California and some selected towns like where I live, Kingman AZ. Actually living on old Route 66 makes the series come alive and I've explored many places found in the books and photo documented them. They are a good read and the photos are good quality. I highly recommend the entire set if you are at all interested in the Mother Road.
