Beschreibung

Galveston and the Great West traces Galveston's emergence as a key American port city: from its initial conception by risk-taking businessmen and daring civic leaders through the thirty-five years it took to realize the dreams of a world-class harbor capable of handling the largest ships afloat. Author Earle B. Young interweaves two major themes: the technology that was then being developed and employed in innovative ways and the personal role of entrepreneurs and engineers who together conceived the goals, made the plans, and eventually carried them out in spite of many obstacles.
