So what is her grand adventure? Alice is the first woman to travel across America by car. No big deal, you may say...but it happened in 1909!
Yes, I said 1909! Remember, there were no road maps, no interstates, and hardly any gas stations.
Alice traveled with her friend, Hermine, and her two sisters-in-law, Nettie and Margaret.
Overflowing creeks didn't deter her...neither did mechanical problems. In fact, she helped to repair some of the problems.
I think you and your students should sit back and enjoy our great country as they travel with Alice. The beautiful watercolor pictures will certainly make you want to travel yourself!
