From Chicago to Santa Monica, Route 66 Backroads takes you on a tour of the Main Street of America and beyond. In the 50 driving tours within these pages author Jim Hinckley highlights the Mother Road's most well-known attractions and sights - the Cozy Dog In, Cadillac Ranch, and Wigwam Motel - along with even more off-the-beaten path places.

With routes leading from the prairies and lush hills of the heartland to the West's windswept plains, redrock canyons, and California coast, this book takes you through quaint frontier communities, places where ancient cultures once thrived, and awe-inspiring state and national parks.

More than 200 photos show you the best of what can be found off old 66 - Mark Twain's birhtplace in Hannibal, Missouri; Texas' rugged Palo Duro Canyon State Park; New Mexico's Acoma Pueblo settlement; and the grandiose Hearst mansion in San Simeon, California to name a few.

If discovering places only found by those looking for a true slice of America sound appealing, this book is for you.
