This is the story of Cy Avery, his times, and the legendary highway he helped build. In the early twentieth century, as cars multiplied and mud deepened, Avery was one of a small cadre of visionaries whose passion carried the Good Roads movement from boosterism to political influence to concrete-on-the-ground. Avery went on to assure that one road—U.S. Highway 66—became a fixture in the American imagination.
