Summary
This book presents a unique and engagingly written portrait of the American automobile industry's early years, focusing on the individuals who dreamed, schemed, innovated, succeeded and failed in their quests for fame, fortune, glory, and knowledge. This is a book that tells a story like no other - a history of America, Americans, and their love affair with the "horse-less carriage."
