Beautiful Feet Books: The Year Of The Horseless Carriage 1801


In Genevieve Foster's inimitable style, she brings to life the dawn of the 19th century with all its wonderful advancements in transportation, communication, and technology. This is the age of Napoleon, Jefferson, Toussaint, Livingston, Robert Fulton, Richard Trevithick, Beethoven, Lewis and Clark, Sacajawea, Dolley Madison and many more. Foster's use of "horizontal history" weaves these stories together by delightful retellings and whimsical illustrations.
