Beginning with the primitive horse and buggy and ending with the state-of-the-art automobile, this volume chronicles the history of transportation in a realistic and fascinating way.

Also among the eminent persons who have appeared in the area in the past are Canandaigua native and automobile pioneer John North Willys, Geneva native and Secretary of the Treasury Charles J. Folger, and Phelps innovator Charles Lane, whose chief achievement was building one of the first fire trucks in Ontario County.
