THE GREAT BRIDGE The Epic Story of the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge

by | Read by Edward Herrmann

History • 11 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

The building of the Brooklyn Bridge--at the time, the longest suspension bridge in the world--over 14 years took its toll on the men who built it. Among the casualties were the men who led the project --John Roebling, who died of lockjaw following an accident at the site, and his son Washington, who suffered from decompression sickness. Edward Herrmann brings the story alive by making it a human story of the Roebling family and the workers who executed their vision. Although constructed from dry sources, the account brings alive the sacrifices made for this engineering marvel. This emphasis on the human side makes the story a natural for audio. J.A.S.
