SKU: 520011


A canal across the entire state of New York? Folks don't believe anyone can build a waterway to connect the Hudson River with the Great Lakes, but a young politician named De Witt Clinton has the vision. The Amazing Impossible Erie Canal tells the eight-year story from when the first shovelful of earth is dug to Clinton's dream come true of the longest uninterrupted canal in history—a feat that lets people and cargo travel by water from the American prairie all the way to Europe! Beautifully detailed illustrations depict the amazing construction and workings of the Erie Canal. From the groundbreaking ceremony on Independence Day in 1817 to a triumphant journey down America's first superhighway, it's a trip you don't want to miss!
