    Since his childhood, Jim Hinckley dreamed of being an author. After numerous detours into truck driving, mining, ranching, and a variety of other endeavors, he turned to writing a weekly column on automotive history for his local newspaper, theKingman Daily Miner, in his adopted hometown of Kingman, Arizona.

    From that initial endeavor more than twenty years ago, Hinckley has written extensively on his two primary passions: automotive history and travel. He is a regular contributor toRoute 66, American Road, Hemmings Classic Car, and Old Cars Weekly, and he is an associate editor atCars & Parts. Book reviews and original features on automotive history and travel can be found on his blog, www.route66chronicles.blogspot.com.

    Kerrick James\u2019 images have appeared in such publications as Arizona Highways, Sunset, and National Geographic Adventure. He provided the photography for Route 66 Backroads, Backroads of Arizona, and Our Arizona. He lives in Mesa, Arizona.

    Ghost towns lie all along the Mother Road. The quintessential boom-and-bust highway of the American West, Route 66 once hosted a thriving array of boom towns built around oil wells, railroad stops, cattle ranches, resorts, stagecoach stops, and gold mines. Join Route 66 expert Jim Hinckley as he tours more than 25 ghost towns, rich in stories and history, complemented by gorgeous sepia-tone and color photography by Kerrick James. Also includes directions and travel tips for your ghost-town explorations along Route 66.

    Explore the beauty and nostalgia of these abandoned communities along America’s favorite highway!
