really liked it
bookshelves: economics, history-us, history-world, nonfiction
Read in September, 2009

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 incredible story like Ambrose's building of the transcontinental railroad!!!
