About this title:

Synopsis: The Panama Canal is one of man's greatest engineering triumphs, and also a triumph of the human spirit over tremendous odds. From the time of Christopher Columbus, it was man's dream to connect the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and thus eliminate the tremendously long voyages around South America. In "The Panama Canal," popular American history author Donald Barr Chidsey reveals the entire dramatic history of the canal, the region, and the momentous struggle. A stirring narrative account of one of the most daring ventures modern man has undertaken, this book will be enjoyed by anyone interested in history, technology, and true-to-life adventure.
