The Rise and Fall of George Ferris: Love, Deceit, and The Wheel

$12.95

George Ferris unveiled his gigantic wheel at the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893, skyrocketing him instantly to fame worldwide and, he hoped, to fortune. A series of lawsuits and poor decisions dashed those hopes.  Only four years after the unveiling, he died in a Pittsburgh hospital, penniless and abandoned by his lovely wife and his engineering partners, his ashes lost forever. His legacy lives on in the thousands of copycat wheels and the millions of thrill seekers who have ridden them.
