"Journeys Across Niagara" by D.K. LeVick
An ice-bridge? No there really couldn't be one, the boys thought, but is there was one, they wanted to cross it. Kevin, Chuck, Wayne, Lennie, and Billy were friends. They loved to hear the stories represented by the pictures of Niagara Falls, and the one about the ice bridge made them go in search of it. Their journey is incredible and dangerous, but totally pulls the reader in. All along the way, the reader is treated with wonderful historical facts about the Falls and its relationship to things like the Underground Railroad. What was it like to live as a hermit on an island in the Niagara River? What was it like to explore the riverbed when the river went dry? Come on, pick up this book and enjoy the adventure yourself!
This book captured me from the beginning. I loved reading about the boys, the hermit, and so many others from the Falls' history. I love Niagara Falls, and picked this book to learn more about them. I was not disappointed and recommend it to readers of all types. This free review copy was from the Book Sneeze program in exchange for an honest review.
