All of the sites featured, more than 200 in all, are reordered from Illinois to California to provide a continuous journey along 66. The maps included in the previous two volumes are updated to feature the locations of the new sites included here.

Russell Olsen began exploring and photographing Route 66 in 1995. On his first trip down the Mother Road he unexpectedly shot 27 rolls of film. Annual trips followed and in 1998 Olsen set out on his “Lost & Found” project, collecting vintage postcards, photographing Route 66, and publishing the first volume of Route 66 Lost & Found in 2004, and the second volume in 2006. Born and raised in South Chicago, Olsen today lives in North Hollywood, California. His work can be viewed at
