Ernest Rutherford grew up in a tiny town in New Zealand. He had a curious mind and yearned to further his education. But his family could not afford to send him to high school or university. Three times he tried for scholarships and each time he failed. However, with perseverance and patience he finally succeeded, and he'd go on to become one of the world's greatest scientists. This is a story about New Zealand's most famous scientist and not giving up on your dreams. From the award winning author Maria Gill with stunning illustrations by Alistair Hughes. This is Maria and Alistair's third collaboration about a significant event in New Zealand and the world's history. Other books include The King's Medal and Ice Breaker!.
