A story about Louis Bleriot which follows his efforts in the field of aviation. He used his wealth made from an automotive searchlight to fund his building and development of aircraft. The story shows the many trials of his endeavors up to his successful crossing of the English Channel. Caldecott Award book. The illustrations give a nice sense of the era in which the story took place.
