About the Author

As a leader in back-road touring, Tom Snyder's labor of love with fabled Route 66 has led more than a quarter million travelers to rediscover the grand old highway, its towns, and its people. Tom has lived and traveled throughout California and the Pacific Northwest for much of his life. Along the way, he has worked as an oil-field swamper, a short-order cook, a sailing coach, and the director of a nationwide program for children with special needs. A lapsed pilot and semiprudent motorcyclist, Tom acknowledges a genetic weakness for open spaces and quick machines.


Author Tom Snyder was an early advocate of a Route 66 revival and his 1990 Route 66 Traveler’s Guide&Roadside Companion for St. Martin’s Press was the first guidebook to the old road written in more than forty years, as well as the first to map the route since its decertification in 1985. He lives on the West Coast, dividing his time among British Columbia, Washington, and California.
