Alice's drive : republishing veil, duster, and tire iron

In 1909, Alice Ramsey, a 22-year-old mother from Hackensack, N.J., became the first woman to drive an automobile from coast to coast. Leaving 1930 Broadway in Manhattan on June 9, she arrived in San Francisco on August 7. More than fifty years later she wrote a charming book about it, and our reprint is annotated with 108 notes. Appended to this is "Chasing Alice", describing her exact route in 1909 relative to today's roadways. We've added the story of the restoration of an identical 1909 Maxwell DA, which will replicate Alice's trip on the centennial of her adventure, 2009. -back cover
