Meet the Author

Susi Trautmann Wunsch has said that "as befits a book about space travel," the idea for The Adventures of Sojourner "descended from the clear blue sky." When she heard news accounts of the Mars Pathfinder mission during the summer of 1997, she was reminded of The Little Engine That Could, one of her family's favorite books. "Like the book's character, the rover was small (hardly bigger than a breadbox) and intrepid."
