Summary  Famed "Tarzan" author Edgar Rice Burroughs , his wife, three children, maid and a dog travelled from Chicago to Los Angeles during the summer of 1916 in a Republic truck. The company asked him to write a short account of the family's three month adventure for promotional purposes. Though supposedly widely circulated, copies very seldom surface and it is considered a rarity among Burroughs collectors. This is a facsimile of that booklet, originally published in 1917 when roads were rough, trucks were tough and cross-country journeys were still novel enough to warrant print. "Provided as a souvenir of the Burroughs Bibliophiles 'Dum-Dum', Tarzana, California, August 23-25, 1996."
