Book Description Brentano's, New York; (1924). Octavo. 262p. thirty-six photographs. A fascinating trip by a couple who traveled across the U.S. that shows the adventuresome life of driving in an era where instead of freeways there were ruts, sinkholes and stranded strangers (which they often picked up). With their new Hupmobile (a grill that the Lincoln Continental would use in the 1960's), Mary Bedell here describes the West as she observed it where cowboys kept their women at home, medicine men hawked their wares to audiences remote from civilization who bought cures for fatal diseases as well as those endemic to everyday life. Once they left Fort Worth their camping (to save on hotel bills) showed how they camped, the scarcity of water, and the dismal Fort Stockton until they reached El Paso. The road to Geronimo, Arizona--the conditions of the Apache Indian Reservation, a parade of tiny Arizona towns such as Vicksburg but in Phoenix they describe a huge Ku Klux Klan rally which disgusts them. The various conditions from horrendous weather, car breakdowns, the people they met, and an America neglected by most of the writers in the National Press which was rooted on material from both coasts. Library stamp on endpaper with some old glue residue, bookplate of The Bookshop on the Trail at the Hernando County, Y.W.C.A. at Brooksdale, Florida. Informational blurb mounted to front free endpaper, bound in a pictorial cloth by the decorative designers depicting a campsite in green, yellow and black., spine lettering gilt. A very good copy.
