In this book, Claire Puccia Parham reveals the human side of the project in the words of its engineers, laborers, and carpenters.

On the fiftieth anniversary of the dedication of the power dam and waterway, this book is a fitting tribute to the hard work and dedication of the project’s 22,000 workers.
