Description
"That steel-driving man who was born--and died--with a hammer in his hand comes vividly to life in a picture book so colorful and dramatic that surely it is the best yet by Ezra Jack Keats, a Caldecott Medal winner. . . . Each double-page spread seems to radiate the vital force that led John Henry to challenge a steam drill to a rock-drilling contest--and win".--The Chicago Tribune. Copyright © Libri GmbH.
