Roads & Routes

Roads & Routes History Books


Featuring vintage images of America's roads and routes, each book celebrates the unique aspects of traveling the nation's blacktops through historical images and descriptive captions.

From the narrow paths of California's Rim of the World Drive to the building of the Blue Ridge Parkway, from the New Jersey Turnpike to the scenic Ohio River Byway and Georgia's Dixie Highway, the historic lanes of Route 66 spanning eight states, and the people and places along the way that make them great, thousands of vintage images give readers an engaging visual trip down the lanes of America's highways and byways.
