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

My parents can't stop raving about the book, I sent it as a gift after seeing at in a display case at a rest-stop of all places. Brings them back to driving the old route when it was just that!

Great book, especially the area on the Grapevine, and Ridge Route. For anyone interested in California highways, this is an excellent book.
