Description

From "one of our most gifted living writers" (The Washington Post), three great stories of American accomplishment--the building of the Brooklyn Bridge, the construction of the Panama Canal, and the invention of flight--all collected in one volume.

This boxed set includes the following three volumes:

The Great Bridge
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.

The Path Between the Seas
The National Book Award-winning epic chronicle of the creation of the Panama Canal, a first-rate drama of the bold and brilliant engineering feat that was filled with both tragedy and triumph.

The Wright Brothers
The #1 New York Times bestseller --the dramatic story-behind-the-story about the courageous brothers who taught the world how to fly--Wilbur and Orville Wright.
