David McCullough: Great Achievements in American History
The Great Bridge, The Path Between the Seas, and The Wright Brothers
Table of Contents
About The Book
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.
