Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Radio veteran Joe Sonderman's interest in Route 66 began with a curiosity about the roadside sights passed by his family's station wagon when he was a child. He began collecting postcards about the route; set up a web site; then graduated to full authorship, producing the well-received Route 66 in Missouri. Now he returns with another nostalgia-quenching Arcadia Images of America book. Obviously, Sonderman knows how to show us the Show Me State.
