"October Sky rewards every mother and teacher who ever told children they could be anything they wanted if they worked hard enough." --Orlando Sentinel .The #1 New York Times bestselling memoir, October Sky, is the true story of Homer "Sonny" Hickam, Jr., a boy from the mining town of Coalwood, West Virginia. In 1957, when Sonny was just 14 years old, Sputnik raced across the Appalachian sky. It left in its wake one boys desire to build rockets; a dream that he ardently pursued with the help of those around him. October Sky offers many readers­­, parents, teaching professionals, school administrators, and childcare-givers, among them­­ a way to teach and foster the concepts of hope, passion, confidence, self-realization, and the power of following a dream. "400 schools in Canada and the USA [are] using Hickams autobiographical October Sky to teach lessons that go beyond typical classroom learning." --USA Today, 11/21/00
