Ready for a ghost town adventure?
The quintessential boom-and-bust highway of the American West, Route 66 once hosted a thriving array of towns built around oil mines, railroad stops, cattle ranches, resorts, stagecoach stops, and gold mines. However, over time, all of these boomtowns lost their popularity and their populations. All that remains of these towns are architectural reminders of past glories and incredibly rich stories.
However, you can still explore the beauty and nostalgia of these abandoned communities. Join Route 66 expert Jim Hinckley as he tours more than 60 ghost towns along the Mother Road. This edition also includes directions and travel tips, as well as a fold-out map, along with gorgeous sepia-tone and color photography by Kerrick James.
