The Kite that Bridged Two Nations: Homan Walsh and the First Niagara Suspension Bridge
by Alexis O’Neill (Author) and Terry Widener (Illustrator)
Booktalk: Homan Walsh loves to fly his kite. And when a contest is announced to see whose kite string can span Niagara Falls, Homan is set on winning…
Through snow, on ice, and two miles north,
I took my place above the grasping Whirlpool Rapids.
Don’t look down, I told myself.
I set my gaze aloft and launched my kite.
