Andrew Higgins & The Boats That Landed Victory

By: Nancy Rust and Carol Stubbs 
Illustrated By: Brock Nicol
32 Pages

Andrew Higgins built boats that could "crunch through driftwood, bounce over logs, climb a beach," and "wham up on a sloping concrete sea wall." In World War II, that was exactly what was needed to get soldiers and Jeeps from the ocean to land. This biography for young readers traces the invention of the legendary Higgins boat--and the adventurous childhood of the remarkable man behind it.
