About the Book

“Nothing is more critical, I believe, than that children growing up in these critical explosive days should be given an understanding of American history as a part of the history of the world. Every year this grows more urgent, as increasingly rapid communication integrates world events more closely and the impact of foreign affairs on our own lives becomes more serious and immediate.” -Genevieve Foster

The Year of the Horseless Carriage: 1801, presents the dawn of the 19th century with all its brilliant advancements in transportation, communication, and technology. While the world of technology is progressing rapidly, human rights and liberty are variously being trampled or rising.

The megalomaniac Napoleon is proclaiming “liberty, equality, and fraternity” to a war-weary Europe, Jefferson is contemplating the largest land purchase in the history of the world, and Toussaint L’Ouverture is fighting for liberty in Haiti.

Robert Livingston, Robert Fulton, Richard Trevithick, Beethoven, Lewis and Clark, Sacajawea, and Dolley Madison are all playing their parts. In this memorable retelling, youthful readers will come to appreciate why Foster was convinced that “history is drama.”
