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 is available in bookstores and gift shops.
