Author

DAVID WEITZMAN is the author and illustrator of more than a dozen books for children on America's industrial and technical history.  Weitzman works are a historical flashback to when youth followed in the footsteps of their elders and learned from the stories told by the elders.  He uses historical documents and interviews to develop the stories that he writes.
