Dedication
To my father, Ruskin, for teaching me how to drive,
and
to Robyn, for driving along with me
First words
[Preface:] In this study I am concerned with two objects (texts): the automobile and selected works of American literature; yet both of these objects/texts are elusive.
[Chapter 1:] Over one hundred years have passed since Charles E. and J. Frank Duryea built and tested their first gasoline-powered horseless carraige on the streets of Springfield, Massachusetts, and in that century the automobile has come to dominate the lives of most Americans.
