reviewed George Goethals: Panama Canal Engineer (Discovery Biographies) on
The reading level is grades 2-4, but the Jean L. Latham writing style is still there.

This book follows George Goethals from young boyhood to burrial. The usual Latham themes of hard work, respect, duty, honor and country are there. With a 1991 publication date, the theme of being manly isn't there, but "a wife's job is to make her husband feel important" is there. Definitely, an old fashioned values book.
