Samuel F.B. Morse
Samuel Morse was an artist! While sailing to New York, he listened as passengers pondered whether or not the flow of electricity was slowed by the length of a wire. Could signals be sent instantly anywhere along a wire by electricity? Could newspapers in America carry news of events that had taken place that very morning in Europe? It took Samuel Morse 12 years to find out! An exciting story of discovery awaits the reader of this well-written biography, authored by John Hudson Tiner. 169 pages, paperback, 5 1/4"x8 1/4". Ages 10 and up.
