July 29, 2019 – What do you get when two icons of the Industrial Revolution pile into a Model T and speed off to look for America? A one-of-a kind road-trip, peppered with Jazz Age characters like Harvey Firestone, John Burroughs, President Calvin Coolidge, and hardscrabble fiddler Jep Bisbee. Gassing us up for this journey is Jeff Guinn who brings us The Vagabonds: The Story of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison’s Ten-Year Road Trip.
Then as now, time spent stuck in a car brought frayed nerves and zany mishaps — literally bumps in the road — but there’s no better way to get the cut of someone’s jib. Jeff Guinn is an award-winning former investigative journalist and the bestselling author of numerous books. They include Go Down Together: The True Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde, and, The Last Gunfight: The Real Story of the Shootout at the O.K. Corral
