This chapter looks at another of Alexander and Kellogg's major trips, where they visited several countries in Europe. It begins by noting Alexander's restlessness upon returning to the ranch after their Mojave Desert excursion, along with her increasing interest in human evolution. Alexander planned a trip to Europe after several early human remains were unearthed there. Their first stop was England, where they visited the British Museum, Westminster Abbey, and even the local Citroën dealership. It was here that Alexander went in search of the Kégresse, which was an automobile that had caterpillar treads instead of rear wheels. After their trip to England, the two women traveled to France, where they were given a demonstration of the Kégresse, and finally to Spain.

Keywords:   Europe, human evolution, early human remains, Citroën dealership, Kégresse, British Museum
