This was another outstanding book by McCullough. David McCullough is one of the best history writers I've come across. You can see from my reviews that I've loved every one of his books that I've read. Some subjects would seem impossible to write about and make interesting, but he has a way with words. Like I always say, "Truth and history is far more interesting that fiction." This book starts with the French efforts to repeat their success on the Suez with a Panamanian canal. Malaria, Yellow Fever, Corruption, Back Door Dealings....ect. This story has it all. I plowed through this book in a couple weeks, and I'm sure you will to. Amazing.
