Driverless cars are on the horizon, but before the world falls asleep in the driver's seat, let's take a look back down the road from whence we have come. Ford Model T Coast to Coast, documents the cross-country adventures of two brave drivers as they pilot a century old Model-T on a 3,000 mile journey from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Coast.
The book is as much a contemplation of early-20th century American life as it is a fond farewell to the automotive age. Can the car still be the vehicle of freedom and discovery, when we're no longer in command? Or will we finally be able to fully appreciate the scenery rushing past.
Accompanied by photographer Michael Alan Ross, author Tom Cotter stops in small towns, meets local people and hears their stories about cars, travel and life. Cotter and Ross also explore back roads adjacent to the main route, the Lincoln Highway--the first transcontinental road.
