"The Lyon brothers' journey conjures images of Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Charles Lindbergh's The Spirit of St. Louis, Jack Kerouac's On the Road, and John Steinbeck's Travels with Charley: In Search of America.

—Sally Denton, from her conclusion

"This tale of unmitigated gumption is recounted in the recently published book: 1930: Manhattan to Managua, North America's First Transnational Automobile Trip. The book is basically the day-to-day dairy of one of the two brothers, Arthur Lyon."
