Description

Growing Up on Rt. 66 is the memoir of two farm siblings, Ray born 1935 and Theresa 1944. They lived on a 200-acre tenant farm on the 100-milepost from downtown Chicago with their gravel driveway leading out to the legendary Rt. 66. Early life for them was no running water, electricity, or central heating but lots of interdependence with the land, weather, neighbors, and each other as a family of four.

Rt. 66 travelers brought them a different kind of exposure to the outside world, but rarely changed the character of what rural life was like.
