Praise

“Macy’s lively writing and vivid descriptions of treacherous roads conditions become all the more fascinating when combined with the crisp archival photos, car advertisements, news stories, and quotations embellishing each chapter… Steer any reader with an interest in history towards this fantastic book.” — Booklist Starred Review

“This meticulously researched account of early automobiles and women is an excellent companion to Macy’s previous title Wheels of Change… This insight into women automobile pioneers is well worth it. Highly recommended for tween and teen history collections.” — School Library Journal Starred Review

“Using the lens of automotive history to inform a greater narrative about women’s liberation, Macy capably shows how threads of the past are intertwined.” — Publisher’s Weekly

“Macy wheels out another significant and seldom explored chapter in women’s history.” — Kirkus

“Macy handily contextualizes women’s embrace of driving within the larger framework of world war and the suffrage movement…a spunky title with appeal for report writers.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
