Book Review


Before Eddie Bauer patented his Skyliner down jacket, he patented a badminton regulation shuttlecock. These are just two of his many contributions to the outdoors and sports world! This book takes readers step by step to explain how Eddie Bauer started out as a child in Washington and died a rich and famous inventor and sportsman. Helpful historical references are included that help readers to understand the groundbreaking nature of Bauer’s impact on society. The book ends by explaining where the state of Eddie Bauer’s brand is now, as he died in 1986, and shares that his brand still follows the creed written by Bauer.
