Hook Kids on History with The Young Patriots Series
Boy Pilot and Racer
by Kathryn Cleven Sisson
2003 marks the 100th anniversary of flight. Celebrate with the latest offering from the Young Patriots Series:
"Some day I hope I'll be able to
fly about high in the air."
Eddie Rickenbacker grew up to become a World War I Flying Ace, father of commercial flight, racecar driver, and owner of the Indianapolis 500 Speedway. But as a boy he was more interested in building and racing "pushmobiles," and trying to fly by leaping off the barn roof with an umbrella! Join Eddie and his friends as they grow up at the turn of the century, when automobiles and airplanes were still a novelty and plunging downward on a runaway coal car took the place of a roller coaster ride!
