Looks into turn of the century Paris and the characters of the time. Peeks into Buffalo Bill, Annie Oakley, Thomas Edison, Vincent Van Gogh, and Gauguin. I have new appreciation for the engineering bravado involved in building the tallest structure in the world with analog tools and mostly manual labor.
