I am proud to say that I have a personal connection to this book and Vivian. Many years ago Vivian brought a manuscript to our critique group about the story of the Greyhound Bus Company. I enjoyed learning how one man saw a need in his community and through creatively and determination turned that need into a thriving interstate bus company...and I knew kids would love it too.
This story ended up being part of this extraordinary anthology of travel; Chapter Five of this 96 page, nine chapter book. In From Here to There, Vivian takes the reader from the first manned hot-air balloon flight to computer generated ship design. Her talent for research, nose for unearthing facts and rich writing style brings this book to life. Vivian truly brings the reader through time and TRAVEL. Get moving and add this book to your library!
From the book's jacket: "Filled with fascinating side-bars and vibrant illustrations by Gilbert Ford, this collective biography tells the story of the experiments, failures, and successes of visionaries who found better, faster ways to move over land, sea, and air."
