Genevieve Obert: Prince Borghese's Trail
Stacey's Bookstore, 581 Market St.
In 1907 a handful of European aristocrats, led by Italian prince Scipione Borghese, drove the longest, toughest, automobile race to date. In 1997, Genevieve Obert with co-driver Linda Dodwell and ninety-six other driving teams, reenacted this great adventure in the arduous Peking to Paris Motor Challenge. Rallying vintage automobiles through exotic locales is typically a rich man's sport, but automotive journalist Genny Obert was determined to enter the race from the moment she heard about it. Her book is an inspiring portrayal of two daring women, interwoven with the fascinating story of Prince Borghese's original journey.
