Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - RevaBeth Russell
Andrew SolwaySome of the World's most interesting buildings and structures are explained in this factual book that scientific readers would enjoy. The first suspension bridge was made of grass and built by the Incas who were masters of fiber engineering. Other structural marvels like domes, and arches, and skyscrapers are examined. With the advance of materials, as well as technology the structures are becoming more and more complex. Readers will enjoy seeing historic structures along with modern marvels. . This book is an excellent beginner book for the engineering mind. Reviewer: RevaBeth Russell
