KIRKUS REVIEW

Prize-winning editorial writer Don Murray turns his talents to the juvenile non-fiction field and the unusual subject of tunnels and tunnel construction. Beginning with a review of the engineering feats of ancient civilizations, when a descent into the earth was considered literally a descent into hell, this you-were-there type account brings us through modern day accomplishments such as the Lincoln Tunnel and vast projected bomb shelters of the future. Mr. Murray is expert at arranging and presenting facts for the fullest dramatic impact and his book is as exciting as the best science fiction. Bibliography included.
