Sinopsis: Very little has been written about early canal engineers who, under unbelievable hardships, created marvelous new avenues of communication through the wilderness of the Northeastern United States. With the help of coauthors Mayo, Hahn and Gibson, Shank traces the canal era through its early beginning in New England, the Erie Canal, "Canal Fever" in the Northeast, the "Soo," the Illinois-Michican Canal, the Panama Canal, the canalization of Ohio, Mississippi and Tennesee, and...finally...the St. Lwrence Seaway. Experts of canal engineering themselves, the authors pooled their knowledge to make this book possible. Includes 130 drawings, maps and photos.
About the Author: William H. Shank, Professional Engineer and Lehigh University Graduate, has been authoring books on transportation history in his native state of Pennsylvania for over 40 years. He was instrumental in founding the Pennsylvania Canal Society and the American Canal Society. A leading authority in his field, he has authored 8 books on canal and Pennsylvania transportation history and has also lectured extensively throughout the Northeast.
