Product Reviews

Looks at how Hoover Dam helped Las Vegas sprout as few cities in American history have, and what it was like to live, work, gamble and survive during one of the greatest, ambitious projects in the nation's history. Also contains a list of those who gave their lives during the dam's building and the slang of the builders ('easy-dough' was a boss and a 'Joe McGee' was a makeshift tool). You get a feel for the grit, dust and 120-degree heat flying in the face of workers; The people in power and how they got there and everyday life under hardships endured for dollars a week. Indexed 350 Pgs. 1993
