Description

Drawing from newspaper accounts of the time, McConnell tells the stories behind three races: the 1905 contest between two curved-dash Oldsmobiles, from New York City to Portland, Oregon; the wintertime crossing of America during the 1908 New York-Paris contest; and the 1909 New York-Seattle race. He outlines the routes, the events of the races, and the public response at the time. McConnell is an independent writer focusing on automotive history. Annotation c.
