Road trip! : camping with the four vagabonds : Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, and John Burroughs / by Claudia Friddell ; illustrated by Jeremy Holmes.

Friddell, Claudia, (author.).


"After years of inventing things that other people needed, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford realized there was something they needed--a vacation! So, the famous inventors packed up Ford's Model T and invited their good friends Harvey Firestone and John Burroughs to join them as 'the Four Vagabonds' hit America's back roads to enjoy the country's natural beauty, fireside chats, and frolicking fun with friends--all while inspiring future generations to invent camping adventures of their own"--Provided by the publisher.
