A Quiz Deck by Steve Pastis
You’ve seen their faces at your dining room table, sung one of their poems, and used their services to mail holiday packages to relatives. You’ve probably even read their private letters. Yet these inventors, discoverers, muses, and more are probably unknown to you by name.
With the help of this deck of Knowledge Cards, you’ll soon be on a first (and last) name basis with the first successful open-heart surgeon, the first woman to conquer Mt. Everest, and the first daring driver to take on a transcontinental crossing of the United States (when there were only 150 miles of paved roads in the entire country). The not-so-famous names and clues appear on the fronts of the cards; the backs contain the famous feats plus educational and entertaining background information about each innovator.
