Summary

Summary

This book traces the history of the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge from the earliest dreams of vaulting San Francisco's picturesque mile wide opening to the Bay shortly after the Gold Rush of 1849 through its completion in 1937. Dubbed for many years as "the bridge that couldn't be built," this book chronicles the engineering miracles required to span the Gate with steel, the forces of nature that sought to thwart it, and the colorful bridgemen who lived, laughed, and died on the most famous bridge ever built.
