"Known for many things, Grapes of Wrath families, "Cash and Carry" Pyle's Bunion Derby, its popular local titles, "Main Street of America" and the "Will rogers Highway of America," US 66 runs the gamut of hot and cold, mountains and pairies, beauty and sordid ugliness...

US 66 runs southwestward to the center of the state through miniing districts and oil and gas fields, thence westeward to the Texas Line through farming and stock country" - "Tour 1," Oklahoma: A Guide to the Sooner State, 1941: 219.
