It's 1908, and ten-year-old Eddie MacDonald shares Alexander Graham Bell's passion for solving problems and for taking long walks in the fields above Bras d'Or Lake.

But whereas Bell is renowned by many for being the smartest man in the world, Eddie is just a local farm boy who struggles to learn to read and write. After a few chance encounters, the elderly Bell befriends the young boy, and takes an interest in his struggle--encouraging Eddie to celebrate his successes and never give up.

When Bell's long ambition for manned flight culminates in the Silver Dart soaring over Bras d'Or Lake, Eddie is inspired to find solutions to his own challenges.

This book was amazing and I loved the part when Eddie met Hellen Keller because I just thought that it was really cool that she could read and write even though she was blind and def.
