You don't have to be Jack Kerouac to love the highways and roadside eateries of heartland America. In fact, U.S. Route 66 has generated its own mythos, complete with books, songs, movies, television shows, and legends. The 317-mile Missouri stretch has earned millions of traveler's tributes, in the form of colorful picture postcards sent along the asphalt trail. Jon Sonderman's nostalgia-arousing Route 66 Missouri recaptures the glories of "The Mother Road" with reproductions of more than 300 postcards and color photographs of the motels, tourist traps, gas stations, and roadside big breakfast restaurants. Think of it as a baby boomer dream book.
