Henry Ford loved mechanical things: springs and gears, cogs and wheels, and things that clicked and ticked and turned. One hot summer day in 1876, Henry and his father were riding to Detroit in their farm wagon. Suddenly there was a huffing-puffing monster heading straight toward them. It was a road-roller, and it was lumbering down the road all by itself. That was the day Henry started thinking about horseless riding machines–and he never stopped. In We’ll Race You, Henry, young readers will discover the origins of one of the most popular cars of all time–the Model T–as well as the daring side of its inventor and the early days of automobile racing.
