From southern Cook County to the Mississippi River, the Lincoln Highway meanders through many of Chicago’s suburbs before heading west through Illinois’s fertile farmland. America’s first transcontinental highway once stretched nearly 3,400 miles from New York City to San Francisco. The story of the highway’s role in shaping the contemporary American highway system is one that examines the interaction of technology and human spirit. Conceived by entrepreneur Carl G. Fischer in 1912 and endorsed by businessman Henry B. Joy, the idea of creating an automobile-friendly roadway spanning America would soon change the nature of travel in the 20th century. Lincoln Highway in Illinois defines and describes the role of the highway as it zigzags its way across the “Land of Lincoln” and highlights the cities, towns, and rural communities along its route.

Written by a serious fan of historic roads, this is the story of a New York City to San Francisco road trip over the Lincoln Highway during its centennial year. Driving a half-century old car, Denny Gibson covers the eastern half of the century old route as part of the Lincoln Highway Association Centennial Tour. Then, after an anniversary celebration at the highway's midpoint in Kearney, Nebraska, the trip continues on to the west coast with a smaller group. The route followed is, as close as practical, the Lincoln Highway's original 1913 alignment. The car is a 1963 Plymouth Valiant convertible. It has a fancy push button transmission but the luxury stops there. No power steering, no power brakes, no power top, and no air conditioning. Problems are not quite as scarce as power accessories but there are not many. The old Plymouth carries Gibson from his Ohio home to Times Square to San Francisco then back home again. Much of the return is along the Route 66 corridor with occasional stops on that historic road as well. The book is illustrated with more than 150 black and white photos. "Denny's friendly writing makes you feel like you're along for the adventure of a lifetime, with fun surprises around every bend and all the bumps in the road already smoothed out." ~Brian Butko, author, Greetings from the Lincoln Highway
