Description

"Any kid who has beheld Niagara Falls -- or even taken a good look at pictures of it -- will be suitably gobsmacked by the true story of charm-school teacher Annie Edson Taylor, who, at age 62, decided on a whim to fund her golden years by being the first person over the falls." -- Booklist

"Van Allsburg’s foray into nonfiction is filled with the same suspense, surrealism, and menace that have thrilled readers of his fiction." -- School Library Journal
