A National Bestseller!!! This the touching and inspiring true story of a group of boys growing up in the mining town of Coalwood, West Virginia. The launch of Sputnik in the 1950s ignited their imaginations and they began building rockets with the encouragement of supportive teachers and helpful miners, who offered scrap materials. Readers will laugh and cry as Homer comes to terms with his relationships with his family and achieves success no one in Coalwood dared hope for. In a town dependent on dwindling coal resources, the Rocket Boys allow Coalwood to invest in a different resource: the intelligence and enthusiasm of their young people. This trade paperback is the latest edition of Rocket Boys, and contains eight new pages of vintage photographs of Homer, his buddies, and Coalwood. Made into a popular movie, entitled, "October Sky" -- also available at this website.
