Edison and Ford in Florida

Edison and Ford in Florida [Images of America Series from Arcadia Publishing].
The lives of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford intersected at their winter homes in southwest Florida. Edison first visited Fort Myers in 1885, building a home and laboratory soon after. There, he wintered with his wife, Mina, and their children, Madeleine, Charles, and Theodore. Ford purchased the adjacent estate in 1916, wintering in the area with his wife, Clara, and son, Edsel. Here in southwest Florida, these famous neighbors relaxed and found time to explore new projects.

New Flathead V-8 Book

Just $21.95 shipped to the US.

Identifying and rebuilding a Ford flathead V-8 today — that’s what this book is all about. It reviews the evolution of the engine design; surveys what the factory and rebuilders did “in the day”; and evaluate the current options. For the most part, what early rebuilders did back then still works now. It is hoped this book will provide an introduction to building a stock or modified flathead Ford using currently available parts and shop practice. This book is not a detailed rebuilder’s manual illustrating all aspects of common shop practice. Nor is the book a restorer’s guide which details the small parts hardware and the fine points of the appearance of the engine. The emphasis in this book is on the evolution of the basic design and the restoration of proper function of the engine.

In this insightful examination of a neglected historical episode, Greg Grandin depicts Henry Ford's disastrous attempt to establish a rubber-producing settlement in the jungles of Brazil. While Ford's plan was initially motivated by purely economic reasons, it eventually swelled into an attempt to create a utopic society wherein industry and nature would coexist in perfect harmony. Unfortunately, only Ford himself got to decide the elements necessary to an idyllic existence, leading to absurd attempts to indulge the pre-industrial natives with square dances and tennis courts. FORDLANDIA was a finalist for both the 2009 National Book Award and the 2009 National Book Critics Circle award for nonfiction. 436 pages, Softbound. $21.95 plus S&H.
