Summary "Motoring West: Automobile Travelers in the trans-Mississippi West, 1900-1950, is a proposed multi-volume series that will present a wide range of auto touring narratives from the beginning of the automobile age through the Second World War. When appropriate, early motoring guides will supplement the narratives. The accounts of motoring tourists, lost to readers' eyes in the decades since they were first published, are an invaluable resource for understanding the early twentieth-century West and the roots of recreational motoring. The documents capture many insights about the amazing advances of automotive technology during the era, reveal the influence that the steadily expanding presence of the automobile exerted upon the development of the West, and illuminate the similarities and differences in the ways that men and women engaged both the automobile and the many Wests that they encountered in their travels"-- Provided by publisher.
