Grace and Grit:

Motorcycle Dispatches from

Early Twentieth Century Women  


by Bill Murphy



ISBN: 978-1-933926-40-7



This well-researched and engaging book delves not only into the specific lives, rides and accomplishment of pioneer female motorcyclists early in the 20th Century, but also the times in which they lived. By detailing the poor road system and the limitations placed upon women in this era, it offers an inspirational story of what these riders accomplished with their epic cross-country motorcycle trips nearly a century ago. Best of all, both men and women will enjoy reading about their guts, grit and determination.
