Here is the story of a mechanically inclined farm boy who turned the automobile from a toy for the wealthy, into a necessity for modern life.
This biography approaches the story of Henry Ford in the context of his world. For example, roads were as much a factor for cars, as the car was for roads. The farmer would not risk his livelihood on a Ford internal combustion tractor until the engine proved itself in his Sunday car. And the public was suspicious of mass production until Ford showed it could provide value, quality, and good wages.
