#MMBBR #Review Motor Girls by @suemacy1 @NatGeo

Come along for a joy ride in this enthralling tribute to the daring women – Motor Girls, as they were called at the turn of the century – who got behind the wheel of the first cars and paved the way for change. The automobile has always symbolized freedom, and in this book we meet the first generation of female motorists who drove cars for fun, profit, and to make a statement about the evolving role of women. From the advent of the auto in the 1890s to the 1920s when the breaking down of barriers for women was in full swing, readers will be delighted to see historical photos, art, and artifacts and to discover the many ways these progressive females influenced fashion, the economy, politics, and the world around them.

National Geographic knows how to write books that engage readers of all ages.  In MOTOR GIRLS the reader hits the road with the bold, feisty and brave woman who changed history from behind the wheel.  This book is jammed packed with pictures, facts and engaging stories about the woman who changed the role that woman played when it come to automotive advancements.  This historically rich book not only illustrates the ways that woman changed the way we look at automotives, but also shines a light on this fascinating period of time.  This is a must for every library, school and home...this book will not disappoint, but rather inspire, engage and entertain!
