The Great Bridge
The Epic Story of the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge
David McCullough - 2001-06-01 (first published in 1972)
Goodreads Rating
Discover the fascinating story of the Brooklyn Bridge, the world's longest suspension bridge at the time, told by master historian David McCullough. This monumental book recounts the tale of greed, corruption, and obstruction, but also of optimism, heroism, and determination during the Age of Optimism. Follow the fourteen-year construction process that required vision and determination comparable to building great cathedrals, and learn about the heroes and rascals who had a hand in its success or failure. A sweeping narrative of the social climate of the time that's more than just the story of an engineering miracle.
