Billy Connolly's Route 66 (The Big Yin on the Ultimate American Road Trip) (2nd Hand Hardback)
Scotland's best-loved comedian heads off on the most famous highway in the world for an unforgettable journey through America.
Having always dreamed about taking a trip on the legendary Route 66, Billy Connolly is finally heading off on the ride of a lifetime. Travelling all 2,488 miles of this epic road, hitting both its classic landmarks and uncovering lesser-known gems, the comedian known as the Big Yin shares the experiences of the countless travellers who have taken the journey before him.
He breaks out the banjo at every opportunity and stops off for a few comedy gigs on the way. Packed with local flavour, the tales he gathers on the way, from the skyscrapers of Chicago through the Wild West badlands of Oklahoma and Texas and on to the beaches of the Pacific coast, tell the story of modern America and they might just inspire a few readers to get on their bikes as well.
The book also contains a section with maps, playlists, recipes, and more, bringing the reader to the heart of this adventure.
With his unrivalled instinct for a good story, and the affability that has endeared him to millions of fans, Billy is the ultimate companion for the ultimate road trip.
