Wow! Talk about history! This book goes into detail from the very beginning when Thomas Jefferson discussed the canal concept with Hombolt at the White House. Then goes into details and politics of the French project. Some things never change! Enjoy!

This is a very good David McCullough book. A fascinating topic and look into Governmental interaction politicaly, internationaly and public /private business. It is a little heavy on the French history compared to the american involvement. He writes mostly based on the people involved. I would have preferred more information on the actual building of the dams and the locks specifically. However, it is as usual, a very good read.

These are Cassette tapes (I thought I was ordering DVD's - but that was my misreading the book deposit) Not easy to find a Cassette Player in our house - but there is one in our truck. So I have been driving the truck to and from work - and enjoying the story of the Panama Canel tremendously. Much more interesting hearing about it than if I had a book to read. Love thse tapes!
