Review: In this historical fiction (based on actual events) readers will learn the story of Homan Walsh, the best kite flyer in a small town near Niagara Falls, who had a dream to win a contest that challenged participants to fly a kite across the Falls bridging the US and Canada. The winner's string would then be used as a guideline for the cables of the first American suspension bridge connecting the two countries. Perfect for libraries looking to strengthen units on engineering and New York history.
