About the Author
JERRY McCLANAHAN Noted Route 66 author, artist and historian, Jerry McClanahan has been mapping Route 66 since his family vacations during the 1960s, when he sat in the back seat of the family Ford, trying to draw his own crude map of the road. Born in Oklahoma in 1957, Jerry s family moved out to sunny Southern California in 1959 (sadly, they did NOT take Route 66). Then there followed a decade of wonderful journeys down the Mother Road, from California thru Oklahoma City. These back seat travels left an indelible mark, one that eventually came to color the whole fabric of Jerry s creativity. Jerry rediscovered Route 66 in 1981, when he and his father made a trip out west, stopping at everything this time. Since then, every year has found Jerry making numerous expeditions along the route, mapping, photographing and collecting information. In the early 1990s, Jerry began painting and writing about the Mother Road full time, enjoying a long stint as staff artist and a staff writer for Route 66 Magazine before moving on to write for the Federation News and American Road (where he is a department editor). In 1994, he collaborated with OK 66 expert Jim Ross on the best-selling Route 66 Map Series (which features his unofficial Route 66 mascot Rootie ), as well as the acclaimed Bones of the Old Road video (with Kathy Anderson). Jerry s photographs have appeared in numerous books and periodicals, while his paintings of old cars on Route 66 hang in private collections across the country and overseas. In 2008, Jerry moved to Chandler, Oklahoma, where he welcomes visitors to his art gallery, just a stone's throw off Route 66.

Again, the above may sound harsh but it's not intended to be. But I am trying to give the folks here at Amazon what the guidebook is like. I will say this, after several days getting to know how the author gives directions, it does get easier, but there is room for improvement.
On the plus side, the book is full of history and anecdotes that make the trip more fun.
I think the author should write a separate Eastbound (EB) guidebook or simply remove the EB directions from this book.
