This book offers stories and memories along with recipes from a cross-section of eateries all along Route 66. The author interviewed hundreds of owners, chefs, waitresses, and includes the best of yesterday and today along 2400 miles.

The recipes are sound and the stories add to the history of Route 66. Interviews with Route 66 personalities are great. Some of these people are now dead. I'm glad their memories and their foods were saved. A great read even for those who don't cook.
