Summary

Since 1917, the Radio Flyer "little red wagon" has been a fixture in the yards, driveways, and hearts of America-and during those 80-plus years, three generations of Americans have turned their wagons into covered wagons, rocket ships, and racecars. In celebration of its 80th anniversary, the Radio Flyer company sponsored a contest called "Radio Flyer Memories," which invited people to share stories, anecdotes, and photos of their own Radio Flyer wagons. The results are collected in this nostalgic and heartwarming look at the history of the "little red wagon" and its unique place in 20th century history. My Little Red Wagon features the winning stories, photos, and precious memories from kids (and former kids) across the country. It also features a history of the Radio Flyer company and looks at the many unique wagons it has produced, including: * The 1920's "Lindy" Flyer, named in honor of Charles Lindbergh's flight across the Atlantic.* The 1930's "Streak-O-Light," modeled after the streamlined Zephyr locomotive, which featured control dials and working headlights.* The 1950's "Radio Rancher Convertible" and the 1970's muscle-car-in
