Rated 5 out of 5★ by The best guide for traveling Route 66 For those that are contemplating a journey along Route 66 you will be ecstatic about this book. Sure, you could go on the internet and take notes, but when you are finished, the result will be a stack of pages that will be difficult to decipher . Why not have this book that follows the route, points out all of the landmarks, and does in in a sequential way. Place a book mark on the page, and move it as you go. And you can add details by writing on the pages. When arriving home you will have an invaluable record of your trip. Buon Viaggio 06/21/2014
