This beautiful commemorative book provides a thorough & faithful perspective on the Canal as it paints a compelling portrait of the skill & sacrifice of those who built & have operated this crucial waterway. Author Friarís mother, Willie Friar, was dir. of public affairs for the Panama Canal Comm. Foreword by George R. Goethals, whose great-grandfather George W. Goethals was chief engineer of the Panama Canal from 1907 to 1914. Illus.
