Even though wind is invisible, we can see it action just about everywhere we look. Birds soar on it. It sends autumn leaves skittering across lawns. And we can even harness its power to create electricity. Readers will learn what causes wind, how people have used wind power throughout history, and why wind is becoming one of the leading alternative energy sources for generating electricity.
