Forever To Boulder Dam To Me..   *****

 

First, this is an incredibly well researched account of the politics, engineering, and human achievement that went into creating this dam. Hiltzik combines excellent documentation with a personal writing style that compels one to keep turning the page. After reading this I will always call it the Boulder Dam.

Read for yourself and see if you agree!
