Summary
Story based on actual events. A young kite enthusiast lends his skill to an engineering feat-- the construction of the first suspension bridge downstream from Niagara Falls. O'Neill's narrator (16-year-old Homan Walsh in 1847, from the author's note) recounts in free verse his entry in the kite-flying contest posed by the bridge's engineer. The winner must anchor a line 240 feet across an 800-foot chasm between the United States and Canada above Whirlpool Rapids. Backmatter includes a timeline, source list and more complete story of what is actually known or surmised for the story's telling
