Not a sequel to Genius In The Family, but an account of his own adventures in the early days of motor transportation. Trial and error methods, a good deal of fairly technical data on combustion and engines. Parts of it are amusing, as flashbacks to the first conference, the early races, a long distance trip from Hartford to Springfield, and so on. The period is the end of the 19th century. Good background for any study of the history of automobiles. Part of this have appeared in Harper's Magazine. Possibility of plus sale for older boys.
