Summary
"At his death in 1887, James Eads was easily the most famous engineer in the world. He'd built gunboats that helped the Union win the Civil War; designed a stunning bridge for St. Louis -- the first in the world to be built of steel; and devised an ingenious scheme that kept the frequently silted-up Mississippi River open to ocean-going traffic -- a feat that turned New Orleans into the nation's second largest port. ... rediscovers the story of this remarkable man who began his working life as an errand boy, taught himself the principles of engineering ... and who was, by 37, one of the richest and most influential figures in the Midwest"--Container excerpt
