Sarah Walters is a less-than-perfect debutante. She tries hard to follow the time-honored customs of the Charleston Camellia Society, as her mother and grandmother did, standing up straight in cotillion class and attending lectures about all the things that Camellias don´t do. (Like ride with boys in pickup trucks). But Sarah can´t quite ignore the barbarism just beneath all that propriety, and as soon as she can she decamps South Carolina for a life in New York City. There, she and her fellow displaced Southern friends try to make sense of city sophistication, to understand how much of their training applies to real life, and how much to the strange and rarefied world they´ve left behind. When life´s complications become overwhelming, Sarah returns home to confront with matured eyes the motto ´´Once a Camellia, always a Camellia´´- and to see how much fuller life can be, for good and for ill, among those who know you best. Girls in Trucks introduces a narrative voice that is astonishing and irresistible - a true, sweet, and wise voice that heralds the arrival of an exciting new talent. 1. Language: English.

Here´s a biographical profile of the White brothers who built steamers and trucks and developed a reputation for unique marketing concepts. ´´The Fight of the Century´´ took place in 1910, pitting Jack Johnson, the first African American heavyweight boxing champion against Jim Jefferies who was white. The fight was shrouded with racial tension and gave rise to the term ´´Great White Hope,´´ referring to the need to find a white man capable of defeating the black champion. Jeffries, the unbeaten but retired former champion stepped forward. Walter, Windsor and Rollin White, owners of the White Company of Cleveland, the world´s largest producer of steam cars and a recent convert to gasoline-powered automobiles, saw a great marketing opportunity with a play on their name. They offered a gasoline powered White automobile to Johnson and another White car to Jeffries, to use as pacing cars for their morning workouts. Jeffries lost the fight. Johnson became a wealthy celebrity-athlete, and the White Company of Cleveland went on to become one of the nation´s four largest truck manufacturers. 1. Language: English.
