"Indian Motorcycle offers a fascinating glimpse into the world of motorcycles and the people who dedicate their lives to designing them, building them, and riding them. Obviously, if you aren't already interested in Indian and its history, this book isn't for you. But for those of us carrying a little fanboyism for the brand, it's an interesting read and I recommend it. Reader beware, however: you will end up desperately wanting an Indian in your garage." RideApart.com "anyone passionate about the marque will be glued to the pages for hours." Rider Magazine "If you're into Indians, and I know a lot of Throttle Jockey readers are if my emails are any indication, you owe it to yourself to add a copy of this fine book to your collection." TheManual.com "Indian Motorcycle, America's First Motorcycle Company reaches back to the turn of the last century to tell the story of Indian's foundation as a bicycle company, its move into motorcycles and its turbulent ups and downs over the years."
