Great Bridge-Building Contest
Bo Zaunders (au); Roxie Munro (il)
The story of a furniture-maker, who, through showmanship & know-how, came to build one of the country’s great covered bridges. In the 19th century, a time of travel, something got in everyone’s way: water. Rivers, streams, lakes, & bays had to be crossed to get from town to town. This meant wading through often dangerous currents or waiting for someone to take you across by boat. The country needed bridges. The state of VA decided to hold a contest for bridge builders & the greatest engineers & craftsmen responded. They would all be beaten by the humblest of the contestants: Lemuel Chenoweth. “Provides a fascinating peek at a time of enormous innovation & change, as experienced by an appealing yet little-known figure.” Reinf. bind.
