Arthur Pounds "The Turning Wheel" is a must read for any Automobile Enthusiast. In it he describes the birth of the Automobile, the pioneers who developed these vehicles across the world, the impact on American culture, the war effort, the roaring '20s and the Great Depression of the '30s. The giants of the motor world -Daimler, Olds, Buick, Durant, Chrysler, DuPont, Leland and may others come to life in the pages of this book. Their ingenuity, their business skills, their pioneering spirit. Soon after the struggle to create the automobile came the struggle for supremacy - each company working hard to develop new features - automatic choke, air-conditioning, better gearing, brake pads, and so on, the fierce competition driving innovation. Written in the 1930s, this book transports us back to the culture of the time and enables us to meet the people who changed the world through their engineering. The book has been meticulously reproduced and comes with the copious numbers of original drawings by William Heyer.
