Summary
It s 1888 and Bertha Benz s husband, Karl, has invented the prototype Benz motorwagen. But the German government declares the vehicle illegal, and the church calls it the devil s work. Unbeknownst to her husband, Bertha steals away with her two sons and drives nearly one hundred miles to prove just how amazing the motorwagen is. Bertha s mechanical savvy gets the boys to Grandma s house safely, and the remarkable mother/son road trip reduces global concern about moving vehicles
