And when a contest is announced to see whose kite string can span Niagara Falls, Homan is set on winning, despite the cold and the windand even when his kite is lost and broken. Homans determination is beautifully captured in this soaring, poetic picture book that features Terry Wideners stunning acrylic paintings. Both author and illustrator worked with experts on both sides of the falls to accurately present Homan Walshs story. The book also includes an extensive authors note, timeline, bibliography, and further resources.
