Book Review: Motor Girls

motor girlsToday I recommend: Motor Girls: How Women Took the Wheel and Drove Boldly into the Twentieth Century by Sue Macy.

Presents the first generation of female motorists who drove cars for fun, profit, and to make a statement about the evolving role of women.

This books offers a deeper look at the first women to drive automobiles, including in races and throughout the World War. It also offers some fun facts along the way such as the most ridiculous rules of the road (certain mayors in Illinois authorized the police to put wire or throw logs in front of speeding cars). With lots of pictures and sidebars filled with quick facts this nonfiction book is a great read!

You can find this book in the Juvenile Nonfiction section at j629.283 MACY.
