Like so many travel books, the beginning of the journey is described in great detail and then the details become more general and less frequent as the book progresses. But I did enjoy this particular journey because he didn't have any grand expectations, he just wanted to discover this road and it's history in the wake of the slow decline instigated by the popularity of the Interstate Highway system. It's a nice read.

I probably wouldn't have read this book if I wasn't planning on making the trip on 50 this summer, but it was an easy and interesting read (and has me looking forward to stopping in Dodge City). I don't read much travel writing, so I'm not sure how It might compare to other cross-country roadtrip books.
