POST CARDS FROM THE MUSE
By Nandy Ekle
It started as a dirt path connecting neighbors, communities, states and a nation.
Route 66 was an overland route traveled by pioneers, migrant farmers and anyone going west looking for the American dream. From wagon ruts to an asphalt paved highway, it has connected generations of people.
OUR TIME ON ROUTE 66 is an anthology full of stories that tell of good times and bad, Love and heartache, from the past to beyond tomorrow, and all of them connected by one stop, the Tower Station and U-Drop Inn.
