Building Hoover Dam - An Oral History of the Great Depression by Andrew J. Dunar and Dennis McBride.
Building Hoover Dam is the most intriguing book ever written about one of the modern architectural wonders of the world. Dunar and McBride skillfully interweave first-hand accounts of a fascinating group of eyewitnesses.
The realities of living in cardboard boxes and tents in temperatures over 120 degrees Fahrenheit; the noxious exhaust fumes in the tunnels; dangling 700 feet above the canyon floor are related from the vivid memories of the actual participants.
Paperback: 350 pages.
