Route 66 Backroads: Your Guide to Scenic Side Trips & Adventures From the Mother Road,
by Jim Hinckley with photography by Kerrick James, Rick Bowers and Nora
May Bowers, is an unforgettable visual journey along the nation’s
beloved, historic Mother Road.
Divided into six parts, Route 66 Backroads takes the reader
through every state the famed road crosses: starting in Illinois,
through Missouri and Kansas, Oklaholma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and
ending in California. The sub-sections of the book break those states up
into easily explored regions, including the Chicago coast; Kirkwood to
Jefferson City; Hidden Gems of the Plains (Weatherford to Sayre);
Amarillo to Rosewell; Cedar Crest to Alamorgordo; the Flagstaff Loop;
Death Valley; and up the California coast, Santa Monica to Monterey,
just to name a few. From stunning desert landscapes to hidden gardens of
Eden in Supai, the natural landscape captured in Route 66 Backroads is like nothing you’ve ever seen.
