“The Sequence National Landmarks series explores some of the most incredible constructions in the U.S., providing details from the moment of planning through their completion. Building Mount Rushmore details how this famous monument, which originated as a plan to attract more tourists, took 14 years and 450,000 tons of rock to create. Building One World Trade Center focuses on the construction of the tallest building (and strongest office building) in North America and its dedication to the memory of the tragedy of 9/11. Building the Golden Gate Bridge explores the need for a bridge in the Golden Gate strait and how this led to the planning and construction of what became one of the longest suspension bridges in the world. Building the Vietnam Veterans Memorial provides information on this monument to soldiers killed in the Vietnam War, tracing its design, the construction of panels and use of the best granite, and the intricate work necessary to create stencils of each name. Black-and-white and color photos show construction progress and completion, and a time line runs across the bottom of the pages, giving readers the full scope of time it took to accomplish these feats. An excellent resource for young engineers, geologists, and readers interested in construction and design. ”—Selenia Paz
