Story Summary

This engaging non-fiction chronicles an auto race in 1908. The race, sponsored by the New York Times and Le Matin, was from New York to Paris and included teams from The US, Germany, Italy and France. "The Impossible Race" captures all the excitement and trevails of what, at the time, was considered a positively ridiculous and outrageous idea.
