Summary
This book tells the fascinating story of 15,000 covered bridges built in the Unites States and Canada over the past 200 years. Authors describe how these bridges were built, the technological breakthroughs required to construct them, and above all the dedication and skill of their builders. Each of the bridges, whether still standing or long gone, has a story to tell about the nature of America at the time--not only about its transportational needs, but the availability of materials and the technological prowess of the people who built it
