KIRKUS REVIEW

When Mr. Average Man drove so gaily over great mountain roads, he little thought of the stupendous effort involved in building them. Hundreds of men had to sweat and work in constant danger and with incredible individual strength. Mrs. Hewes understands, for her husband is even now working on the new great Alaskan Highway. This boys' story impresses by its tough realistic quality. Ed. Minott wanted to be an Engineer, in this he gets practical experience along with the Swedes and the Irish, on one of the Western mountain roads.
