Book Description
Where did the expression "the real McCoy" come from? African-American inventor Elijah McCoy's successful design of an automatic oil cup may have inspired the popular phrase. This book introduces children to the life of the brilliant pioneer whose contributions to technology, science, and home are very much in evidence today. Beautiful paintings. Reading Level 3.
