KIRKUS REVIEW

The cut through Culebra, the drilling and dredging of the great ditch took place on a battleground of formidable impediments, of human and elemental opponents, pestilence, mosquitos, mountains, earthquakes and international criticism. The men who masterminded the canal,- Theodore Roosevelt, Ferdinand de Lesspes, indomitable John F. Stevens and Major George Goethals- led the brain work. Brawn was supplied by workers who spoke 45 languages. A detailed and vigorous account of a battle against odds.
