Immensely readable history of a great human undertaking...McCullough, like Stephen Ambrose and Walter Lord, can make history read like a novel...a presentation of the whole story from the French beginnings, through the US taking over and the construction by the US...an incredible story like Ambrose's building of the transcontinental railroad!!!
