Though Ferris wheels are a staple at every fair and amusement park today, the man whose name they carry was at first ridiculed for proposing the idea for the Worlds Fair in Chicago in 1893. A feat of human engineering and creativity, the original Ferris wheel, at 250 feet tall, was larger than any Ferris wheel in the western hemisphere today. In this fact-filled biography, author Dani Sneed describes how the visionary George Ferris overcame great obstacles to build his dream.
