Chances are, some of the inventors in this book copied Archimedes and shouted "Eureka!" when they knew they had what they'd been looking for. Others may have just sat, quietly proud, before moving on to the next puzzle that interested them. In this book poet Joyce Sidman goes back in history to present a range of inventors -- some whose inventions saved lives, others whose inventions made life easier or more fun. As Sidman's poetry makes so eloquently clear, however, all of them chased a dream to a place no one had been before. Book jacket.
