Cable, The: The Wire That Changed the World
Gillian Cookson (au)
The compelling story of how the first transatlantic cable was laid -- the people who dared, the people who lost, & the people who profited. This book tells of the dramatic efforts to lay the Atlantic telegraph during the 1850s & 1860s, from the first failed attempts to the expedition that finally succeeded. An inconceivably audacious endeavor to overcome the forces of nature in the name of human progress & technology, the laying of the cable was to change forever our means of communications. Color & black & white photos & illustrations.
