Grade 5-9-- Humanpowered vehicles (HPVs) capture the imagination and ingenuity of modern society. Yepsen discusses these inventions and how they work. A final chapter gives readers hints about making their own HPVs. A list of further reading includes four newsletters and four books, the latest copyrighted in 1981. Black-and-white photographs and drawings show the inventions. Yepsen brings together historical material barely touched upon in books dealing with specific kinds of transportation and includes material on recent improvements of HPVs not easily found elsewhere. --Margaret M. Hagel, Norfolk Public Library System, VA junior high and up
