Product Description
 
Philo Farmsworth and the Television tells of how a teenage farm boy from Idaho was the genius behind the invention of television. In dramatic, graphic novel format, this book tells how Philo Farnsworth came up with the idea for using electricity to send pictures, while plowing a field on the family farm. Readers will also learn about the race to invent television, as companies with big money tried to outwit this inspired and determined young man.
