Stretching from New Orleans to the U.S.-Canada border in Grand Portage, Minnesota, U.S. Highway 61 - like its east-west counterpart Route 66 - is a dying vestige of a time when two blacktop lanes represented the zenith of cross-country highway travel. Unlike Route 66, however, a strong case can be made that Highway 61 - running 1,699 miles through the gut of the nation - is a much truer cross-section of American heritage and geography. From the Deep South, steeped in the tragic legacy of slavery and the magic of rhythm and blues, to the lily-white North Shore of Lake Superior, inhabited largely by the descendants of Scandinavian immigrants, this evocative and artfully executed celebration of Highway 61 is organized as a "road trip" book in three acts: 1) Louisiana to Memphis, 2) Memphis to Wisconsin, and 3) Wisconsin to Canada. As such, it provides an unprecedented and visually intense look at the road s past and present, tying into the people associated with the cities and towns along the way (Robert Johnson, Bob Dylan, Elvis), the literary locales (Mark Twain s Hannibal, Mo.), its proximity to historic sites (Vicksburg), and less-famous but nevertheless interesting folks (Supa-Chikan, a folk artist/musician who builds guitars from 5-gallon gas cans). Each of the eight states through which 61 passes is represented.About the Author:Tim Steil has worked as a reporter in radio, television, and print for almost 20 years, including stints with the Chicago Tribune, Daily Southtown, and numerous national magazines. He is also the author of MBI s Route 66 and Fantastic Filling Stations.

Route 101, the Pacific Coast Highway, commissioned in 1926, follows the path taken by the first Spanish explores of the West Coast, and incorporates El Camino Real, the historic thoroughfare built to link California s twenty-one missions. In some areas, reconstruction and freeway development have diverted the modern 101 from its old alignment; but this book traces the original road, providing detailed directions and mileage for drivers.The layout will be similar to the one used in Nick Freeth s Route 66: Main Street USA. A prologue, outlining the Pacific Coast Highway s pre-twentieth century history, is followed by chapters giving a comprehensive guide to each section of the toad (traveling north-south). These examine 101 s natural beauty that has made it what it is. Every chapter includes features focusing on places of special interest; and there will also be Voice of the Road spreads profiling the highway s key personalities, as well as numerous quotations from authors, poets and songwriters who have been inspired by it. Specially created maps will parallel the text, and the book concludes with an extensive resources section, giving contact addresses and website details for road-related organizations and en route attractions.
