Review: More than 100 years ago, two women drove all the way across the country to stir up support for equal voting rights for women. Muddy roads got their little yellow car stuck numerous times, naysayers tried to discredit them, while travel through blizzards and deserts added danger. But Nell Richardson and Alice Burke allowed nothing to deter them from spreading their message. Lively and humorous drawings still convey the daunting nature of such a road trip early in the days of motor cars, and energetic narrative describes such highlights as their encounters with other key suffragists. End matter gives more period details of the automobile and highlights of the women's suffrage movement.
