This is a good work on an arcane but important topic for anyone with an interest in highways and history here in California. Brought back memories of a lifetime of trips up and down the state on Highway 99.
This book is the southern leg of Hwy. 99, which we traveled a lot when I was a kid in the 50's, so the book brings back a lot of memories. The author has researched roadway features, buildings, etc., and includes descriptions and photos of those that are still present as well as those that are long gone. I also have the book about the leg from Sacramento to the Oregon border, & it is equally nostalgic. Highly recommended, especially if you grew up in California!
This well researched book tells the story of highway 99 in both text and pictures. It is a story of the towns and the people who had the vision to create a 1600 mile highway that started at in Washington at the Canadian border and ended at the Mexican border in California. The book also has a turn-by-turn guide to help you find what still remains of this historic road from Sacramento to the highway's end
