Immortalized in stories, songs, and movies, Route 66 remains a potent symbol of the promise of the American West. This is the first of two volumes presenting a detailed look at the history and surviving physical features of this historic route in California. Focusing on the desert portion of the route, from the Colorado River to the San Bernardino Mountains, the volume combines a narrative of the history of the highway with descriptions of the architecture, abandoned roadways, and landscape features that still mark its path through the California desert.
