The Great Bridge: The Epic Story of the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge


by: David McCullough
The dramatic and enthralling story of the building of the Brooklyn Bridge, the world’s longest suspension bridge at the time, a tale of greed, corruption, and obstruction but also of optimism, heroism, and determination, told by master historian David McCullough.
