Pressestimmen

'This is a wonderful collection of early transcontinental auto experiences. The author has done a tremendous amount of research, and the book is clearly a labor of love. Moreover, McConnell can write: he weaves good quotes into his narratives, and he tells a story well.' James A. Ward, University of Tennessee
