EVERYONE KNOWS about Route 66. Now it’s time to discover the next Great American Road Trip—Route 36!

Tracing a path from the foothills of the Appalachians to the soaring Rocky Mountains, Route 36 was once America’s way west from the Heartland to the Rockies.

This is Allan Ferguson’s Love Letter to the Midwest. It’s a heart-warming tour through the villages, towns, and small cities of the Heartland . . . with stops at two of the country’s most exciting big cities—Indianapolis and Denver.

The Author. Allan Ferguson grew up in Decatur, Illinois, where Route 36 bisects the city. He graduated from Millikin University in Decatur before migrating westward on Route 36 for graduate school at the University of Denver. During the 1980s and 1990s, Mr. Ferguson and his wife, Ruth Wimmer, changed the look of commercial baby toys with their line of black and white developmental products. Following that venture, Mr. Ferguson became known as the leading American expert on budget golf travel to Scotland with his guidebook, Golf in Scotland: A Travel-Planning Guide with Profiles of 74 Great Courses. He lives in Denver and is a Midwesterner through and through.
