For those who loved driving for pleasure and nostalgia this is an Absolutely wonderful book, I can't recommend it strongly enough. Beautiful pictures and great comments by folks who lived/live in the places mentioned. An educational visual treat.
I also own Wallis' great Route 66 book, which lit the fire under me to travel that road. This book (Lincoln Hwy) is interesting, but seems somehow "fluffier" than the 66 book. With the Route 66 book, you felt as if Wallis had a real burning love for the road. With this one, it just feels more like "hey, let's write about another historic road and see if -that- sells". Still though (and especially if you haven't read his 66 book), this isn't a bad book.
If you're looking for a book that will guide you across the Lincoln Hwy, this is NOT the book you want. If you want something that might show you why you want to/should travel the Lincoln, then this is probably as good a place to start as any. I also highly recommend any Lincoln Hwy book by Brian Butko. He seems to have that fire for the LH that Wallis had for Route 66.
