Crossing Niagara

This was a nice look at Blondin's crossing of Niagara Falls.  I had no idea that Blondin did this more than once so I learned something ;0  As usual for a Matt Tavares book the illustrations were wonderful.  I wish there had been more about some of the feats - especially on the double page spread.  I have heard a story that Blondin asked if anyone would ride in the wheelbarrow with him.  It appears no one did but I was impressed that he carried his manager on his back ;0
