A Bestselling Author

In 1914 Henry Ford visited Thomas Edison in Florida and toured the Everglades. The following year they joined together on a summer camping trip and decided to call themselves the Vagabonds. They continued their summer road trips until 1925. Although they traveled with an entourage, there was a serious purpose to these trips: to examine the conditions of America’s roadways and improve the practicality of automobile travel. The road trips made the automobile ubiquitous and magnified Ford’s reputation. The Vagabonds is a story of two American giants and the transformation of the country.
