Behind every great American civil engineering accomplishment, there is a great American civil engineer. Throughout history civil engineers have made an enormous impact on the progress and development of this nation. While their engineering achievements are regularly recognized, the engineers themselves are rarely discussed. Engineering Legends provides a unique view into the history and progress of 32 great American civil engineers, from the 1700's to the present. It explores the personal lives and professional accomplishments of these outstanding engineers, providing an in-depth look at the people behind these achievements. The book also illustrates the diversity surrounding these engineers, such as their differing backgrounds, their reasons for becoming engineers, obstacles they faced, and their work in different disciplines of civil engineering. As Henry Petroski writes in the foreword, "Rich Weingardt has done the engineering profession a great service in writing and collecting these essays into a book that cannot help but inspire engineers, future engineers, and all who benefit (and will continue to benefit) from their work. Engineering Legends is a book that has something for everyone."
