The Creation of BridgesBook - 1999
Explores the complex and fascinating world of bridges and bridge-building from a builder's point of view. Beginning with early bridges built of wood and stone by the Sumerians and the Chinese, the narrative moves on to explore bridge-building over the last 200 years as the arrival of iron, steel, concrete, the cantilever truss, and the suspension bridge changed the look of bridges forever.
