This entertaining story imparts the message that women have changed the course of history

Berta's story is sure to charm, entertain and educate young and old alike. In August of 1888 Berta Benz, a German housewife, and her two teenage sons changed the world. They made the first long-distance drive in a gasoline-powered automobile. They did it without fuel, supplies or the consent of Herr Benz! The trip, though plagued by problems, was a success and showed that motor transportation did indeed have a future.

Praise for Berta Benz
