A collection of motoring accounts taken from 1895 to 1914 which capture the atmosphere of a past age. This is an anthology of motoring for pleasure drawn from a time when the motor car was new, strange, and exciting.
All the writing is first-hand; much of it is in the first person. The words are those of motorists, anti-motorists, and amused or enraged spectators in Britain, the United States, and most of the inhabited world from Siberia to Spain and the Balkans to Peking.
