Motoring-West-by-Peter-BlodgettThe first decade of the 20th century was an incredible time of transition and exploration, and yet, surprisingly, few historians have attempted to document it. Editor Peter Blodgett in Motoring West: Volume I: Automobile Pioneers, 1900-1909, provides the reader an enthralling series of richly detailed time capsules

from this era through a compilation of reprinted magazine articles, company brochures and journals penned by pioneering motorists, prefaced by his engaging introductions. If you enjoy reading of high-spirited adventure, feats of endurance, perseverance, trials, tribulations, colorful characters and trailblazing on the Western frontier, this book will be a welcome addition to the nightstand and library.
