Taking first prize at a 4-H science fair affords two friends the adventure of a lifetime.
Jeri Jones of Spring Grove and Dennis Low of Duncannon joined Good Day PA on Tuesday in an Author Spotlight to share their book, "Isabella and Trent's Hot Air Balloon Adventure: A Kids Geology Book of Pennsylvania."
In the story, Isabella, age 15 and her friend Trent, age 12, go on a 4-day hot air balloon ridge beginning at Lake Erie and finish along the Delaware River south of Philadelphia.
During their trip with balloon pilot Ron, the flight takes them on key Pennsylvania geologic sites such as Drakes Oil Well, coal mines, the Appalachian Mountains, Susquehanna River and its water gaps, Cornwall Iron Mine, Gettysburg National Military Park, Codorus State Park, the Barrens of Chester County among others.
The book is available through Amazon and direct purchasing from Jeri Jones.
