The Boy Mechanic goes back in time to save the earth…and our future.

Adventure, nostalgia, FUN! The latest captivating title in the popular Boy Mechanic series returns to a simpler time when recycling, repurposing, and “repair, not replace,” were a part of everyday life. Back then, no one spoke about “going green”—they just did it as a matter of course. The Boy Mechanic Saves the World (One Project at a Time) comes from that era, and presents eco-friendly, thrifty, and really cool activities. From turning ketchup bottles into nifty soap dispensers and building a window greenhouse for plants to making a power-generating windmill, it features useful and entertaining shortcuts for conserving our resources.

This title continues the very successful series, developed from early and mid-20th-century issues of Popular Mechanics, that celebrates American ingenuity and the can-do spirit.
