A nonfiction picture book account of Alice Ramsey, the first woman to drive a car across America in 1909.

When Alice Ramsey was little, she loved to ride horses—especially fast ones. As she grew up, more people were driving cars. From the moment Alice slid behind the wheel, she was crazy about cars.

 

So when the Maxwell Company challenged her to drive one of their new cars across the country as a promotional ploy to prove that even a lady could do it, Alice daringly accepted.

 

Together, with several women by her side, these trailblazers roughed many insurmountable hardships over the course of a remarkable two month journey and far succeeded all expectations.

With a clever blend of women’s history, technological history, and American roading geography, this is a celebration of unstoppable women making strides in twentieth-century America.
