Product Details

Praise

“O’Neill’s spare text communicates both grandeur and dignity and manages to cover a good amount of territory. . . Widener’s full-page acrylic paintings closely follow the narrative, emphasizing the harsh winter landscape and giving a clear sense of the odds against spanning the gorge. An extensive author’s note spells out what is known and not known about the story and supplies additional facts abou the building of the bridge.” — Booklist

“Widener’s acrylic paintings capture the determination of the boy, the frozen, deeply chilly landscape, and the danger and power of the falls . . . memorable and dramatic.” — Kirkus Reviews
