Celebrating Hoover Dam: The Majesty of Hoover Dam
The design and construction of Hoover Dam constituted a feat unlike any that had been previously accomplished; in its sheer size, scope, and level of technical difficulty, the structure surpassed expectations and set world records. And the history of its creation is replete with fascinating stories about the men, the machines-and the engineering-that made it possible.
