Cris Sommer Simmons, something of an American motorcycle pioneer herself, has been collecting photographs of women motorcyclists for nearly thirty years. A long time rider, often on a Harley-Davidson, she has scoured photo collections across the country and then spend hundreds of hours researching the contents of the photographs she has found. This book is the best of her veritable treasure trove. Charming is the best word to describe each and every shot. Equally, one might say informative or even evocative but in truth this is a hugely significant work that seeks to charm and inject the reader with nostalgia for a surely bygone era.
