BURIED DREAMS: The Hoosac Tunnel and the Demise of the Railroad Age
The Hoosac Tunnel was a nineteenth-century marvel, 4.75 miles long, it took nearly twenty-five years to build with almost two hundred casualties. Black tells the story of America's reckoning with the perils of impractical idealism, the limits of technology to bend nature to its will, and grand endeavors untempered by humility. 24 pages of illus.
