In The Path Between the Seas, acclaimed historian David McCullough delivers a first-rate drama of the sweeping human undertaking that led to the creation of this grand enterprise.

The Path Between the Seas tells the story of the men and women who fought against all odds to fulfill the 400-year-old dream of constructing an aquatic passageway between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. It is a story of astonishing engineering feats, tremendous medical accomplishments, political power plays, heroic successes, and tragic failures. Applying his remarkable gift for writing lucid, lively exposition, McCullough weaves the many strands of the momentous event into a comprehensive and captivating tale.

"Path Between the Seas' is an excellent tale of the people and nations that labored, oftentimes sacrificing their lives, for the canal that reached between the seas. Informative, well researched, and full of details that would normally be missed abound in this book. Narration was excellent, pronouncing the French names with ease, and most Spanish as well. Very well done.

Excellent narration it was kind of difficult to get started but once we got going it flowed quite well, very informative and interesting. It kept my attention and had me wanting to go back to it continually to listen to the next concern or issue regarding the Panama Canal.
