The two-time Caldecott Medal-winning author of "The Polar Express" and "Jumanji" presents the magnificent and true tale of a woman, a wooden barrel, and the great Niagara Falls. Full color.
Master storyteller and artist Chris Van Allsburg tackles the true story of 62-year-old Annie Edson Taylor with honesty and a touch of magic. Forced to close her charm school and facing financial ruin, Annie decided that she would find retirement money and fame in being the first person to go over Niagara Falls in 1901. She got a sturdy oak barrel made, filled it with pillows, and took the plunge. Unfortunately, things did not go the way she hoped. Her bittersweet story is told here, along with stunning illustrations that bring the falls to life. Van Allsburg is the author of THE POLAR EXPRESS.
