Motor mogul Henry Ford (1863-1947) was apparently unhappy with the world his motor car had helped produce and longed to preserve the supposed pioneer virtues of self-reliance and hard work. This volume provides documentation of some of the one million artifacts of largely middle-class rural history that he collected to memorialize the passing era. Some are of great value, some are fascinating kitsch; all are clearly, elegantly photographed in b&w. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
