    DescriptionJohn Steinbeck famously christened Route 66 America's "Mother Road" in The Grapes of Wrath," and that chapter about Tom Joad's exodus is just one of the classic pieces collected in this ultimate anthology. Here's history, roadside attractions, pop culture, ghost stories--even recipes from famous greasy spoons. And it's all illustrated with the largest collection of vintage art, postcards, travel decals, collectibles, and other memorabilia ever amassed. This is a truly a worthy tribute to the Main Street of America.
