Can a kite really bridge two nations? Homan Walsh wonders the same thing. But Homan loves to fly kites, so when he finds out about a contest for kite flyers, he is ready to compete.
The winner will receive $10 and the honor of determining the place to build a bridge between the U.S. and Canada near Niagara Falls.
Based on a true story, The Kite that Bridged Two Nations by Alexis O’Neill tells the story of the bridge from Homan’s perspective. It’s an interesting story – made even more so by the Author’s Note at the back explaining which facts are true, and which are fiction.
