New and Enhanced Digital Edition with over 80 video links.

The great American automotive pioneers were entrepreneurial inventors and visionaries who changed the American landscape and brought us a new national culture. These pioneers lifted the veil of isolation that enveloped most pre-twentieth century Americans and made it possible for the average person to travel whenever and wherever he or she pleased. Automobiles changed the concept of transportation and more so, how and where we lived, worked and played. Many lessons can be drawn from these pioneers and the fascinating lives they led.

"The great American automobile pioneers played a major role in creating the nation we have today and Daniel Alef's book, A Road Well Traveled, brings to life their stories, achievements, successes and, at times, failures. Some were mechanical geniuses; others great businessmen who could sell their dreams and make them come true. Anyone passionate about cars, vintage, antique or classic, and there are millions of us, will find a mother lode of information in this well written book."
Andy Granatelli, "Mister 500" and automotive icon

"As the reader will learn, the automotive pioneers outlined in the following stories may represent the first group of true industrial entrepreneurs and may actually set examples of what can be accomplished today to rebuild our industrial base."
