Dreams of Iron And Steel:
A world that had changed little from the Middle Ages was altered beyond recognition by the engineering genius of the 19th cent. Tells the heroic tale of the visionaries & ordinary workers who brought to life 7 wonders of engineering that still have the power to awe & inspire us today -- from the London sewers that banished cholera to the Panama Canal that shaved thousands of miles off a dangerous sea passage, from the Hoover Dam that diverted the world's most unpredictable river to give power to over half of the country to the transcont. railroad that fulfilled the dream of manifest destiny. Reveals the struggles & stories of the most brilliant pioneers of the industrial age, & the financiers & politicians who hung as fortunes & reputations were lost & won. [via]
