    Easy read. From adult shelf, but more like Jr. High reading.Info on contracts for digging, building, some of the problems, etc. Supposedly grandfather had told stories with some of the details.Until we get started (or even finish !?)

    To those of you who enjoy history I think you would like this book. It is written like a history book with who, what, when and where. It describes how they did the work. I read this to my husband today and we both enjoyed it.
