THE MOTOR CITY AND ME: OUR STORY
Highlighting the rich history of Detroit and how the Motor City left a lasting impact on one woman and her family.
Primarily following McMahon’s life and experiences in Detroit, “The Motor City and Me” tells her story from growing up as a young girl in the city and graduating from the University of Detroit to beginning her adult life and eventually moving away.
Although she left the city long ago, McMahon’s story shows readers how the Motor City has permanently changed her for the better. Paralleling the rise and fall of Detroit with the ups and downs of her own life, the author shows readers how Detroit values strengthened and reassured her throughout the difficult times.
“I read my mother’s autobiography and took a journey through 20th century Detroit, and my ancestors had a remarkable journey in the 1800s to Detroit,” says McMahon.
“Unfortunately, the details of their stories are all buried with them. I want to provide an example of how over time, an ordinary life becomes a glimpse of history and priceless for future generations.”
