Slow at first but very interesting
I wasn't interested in history or how things worked at a young age I have grown to appreciate all these fine made made wonders for us to see and utilize. The beginning of the book was slow and there were many names to remember but I am so glad I held on and finished this book. I have a finder appreciation of all who sacrificed so much of their time, lives, energy to make the Panama Canal a reality.
