Description

"Blondin's daring and cool demeanour made him an instant celebrity - on one [tightrope crossing, he carried a small cook stove, stopped midway, fried up two omelettes, and lowered them to spectators aboard the Maid of the Mist." This book will be especially fascinating for all readers interested in: history, or adventure. From swimmers and jumpers, to tightrope walkers and barrel riders, Niagara Falls has attracted daredevils for almost 200 years. The spectacular falls and dangerous Whirlpool Rapids have inspired men and women to commit daring stunts in search of fame and fortune. Many lived to tell the tale, while others perished in the attempt. Their stories are amazing.
