Even before the Model T, the race for dominance in the American car market was fierce, fast, and sometimes farcical, even as some citizens considered the car a dangerous scourge that was shattering a more peaceful way of life. Looking back on these early days of the auto, G. Wayne Miller's "engrossing and well-written" history (Library Journal) profiles the pioneering competitors Ransom E. Olds, founder of Olds Motor Works and creator of a new company called REO; Billy Durant of Buick Motor Company (and soon General Motors); and inventor Henry Ford. They shared a passion for innovation, but it was their maniacal pursuit of public adulation that would culminate in a wild transcontinental car race, and a courtroom battle that would shape the industry forever.
