Descripción

Text/BRAND NEW & Bright. Softcover/Fine w/trace wear. PO label to fEP. First published 1974, by E. P. Dutton. This is the First Paper Back Edition with errata. The story of the heroic and legendary feat of engineer John Denison (1917 - 2001), who so perfected the art of constructing ice roads, was able to create a network of winter ice roads throughout the Canadian Northwest Territories to service various mines. "It was taken for granted that when John Denison and his road crews went out on the Ice Road they wouldn't freeze, and their adventures there became instant northern legends. Denison's reputation for going any place to make a road and hauling over it any freight that could be fastened to the back of a lowboy trailer truck, even a two-story house thirty feet wide hanging eleven feet out over each side, inspired assorted characterizations. He has been called an awful man for work, a gambler, an incredible optimist, a determined, stubborn bull-headed, reckless man in a hurry, a straight go-ahead truck driver, a true northerner, and the kind of a man who gives the North greatness in the eyes of other northerners, who think the North is the greatest place on earth and wouldn't live anywhere else." [Chapter 1] 237 pages, with maps. In 1998, John Denison was awarded the Order of Canada for his work on the ice roads in the 1950s-1970s. N° de ref. de la librería 04n0385
