9780738528755: Glen Canyon Dam (AZ) (Images of America)

Constructed between 1956 and 1966 by the United States Bureau of Reclamation, Glen Canyon Dam on the Colorado River was a project of immense proportions. Even before the non-stop pouring of 5 million yards of concrete began, much work had to be accomplished. The town of Page, Arizona was established on a windswept mesa to house workers and their families, and the 1,028-foot Glen Canyon Bridge was built to carry men, materials, and equipment to the dam site. Though the dam has proven a controversial structure throughout its history, the massive undertaking of its construction was an undeniable triumph of ingenuity and determination.

About the Author:

In this unique volume, author and historian Timothy L. Parks tells the story of the construction of Glen Canyon Dam, an engineering feat equaled only by its older brother, the Hoover Dam, built 350 miles downstream and some 30 years prior. Through a fascinating collection of photographs, many never before published, Parks illustrates the technology and the equipment, the imagination and the hard work of thousands that made Glen Canyon Dam-and the beautiful Lake Powell- a reality.
