"Life is a Highway gives snapshots of this automotive evolution through a collection of articles and book excerpts from the past hundred years. The topics are as varied as the industry of car production, the thrills and perils of racing, the ups and downs of ownership, and that most sacred of topics, the road trip. Editors Darwin Holmstrom and Melinda Keefe have gathered a terrific variety of sources. Add this book to your holiday wish list and spend a few hours jumping around through time." - "Grassroots Motorsports ""Life is a Highway is a compilation of great automotive writing." - "Kansas City Star" "You don't have to love cars, or to know much about them, to want to own this book. Great automotive writing is as much about journeys, destinations, personalities and atmosphere as it is about machines, and "Life Is a Highway" delivers abundantly on all of the above. - New York Times
