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 Californias 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 Freeths Route 66: Main Street USA. A prologue, outlining the Pacific Coast Highways pre-twentieth century history, is followed by chapters giving a comprehensive guide to each section of the toad (traveling north-south). These examine 101s 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 highways 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.

    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 m...
