“Jane Bernard and Polly Brown are accomplished, widely published Santa Fe photographers who traveled and documented American’s most legendary trail. These superb color and black-and-white photographs merge with their subjects’ mini-oral histories and the photographers’ journal entries.”
–Michael More, “Camera Arts”

“Polly Brown and Jane Bernard are the Thelma and Louise of Documentary photography, shooting their way down the Mother Road with eyes and hearts wide open. Steinbeck, Kerouac, Mick Jagger, and Elvis would all love this book.”
–John Suiter, Author and Photographer
