Gr 3-5-Blending specific information with dramatic storytelling, these accounts of some of the world's most ambitious construction projects all capture a sense of their awesome scale. The volumes recount massive obstacles, hazards, worker abuses, and environmental stresses. Other issues are also covered. ("The number of people who died building the Great Wall may have exceeded 1 million.") Authors highlight the ingenious, often unique, engineering that made each project possible. Enhanced by sidebars, color photos or period images, and helpful resource lists, these titles all make riveting reading.α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal.
