Series: Atlantic large print. Hardcover: 206 pages.

Series: Atlantic large print. Publisher: J. Curley (1988). The rest have over a dozen spelling and grammar errors that were no doubt due to the OCR scanning process on the original books/manuscripts. The software just can't identify certain words and doesn't always fix hyphenated words back to whole words.

Zane Grey's colorful depiction of that era is priceless. The ambiance of that time and place really come to life. My father worked on the Dam, and this book is like the heart and soul of the project. Charlene Cruze/EARTHMARK. Teen and Young Adult. Literature & Fiction.

This was a very informative, educational book about all the jobs involved in the building of Bouider Dam, later
called Hoover Dam. The main character was personally involved in many of these jobs and they were described
very thoroughly which was really interesting. This young man was also involved in trying to protect a young lady
who was brought to Las Vegas under false pretenses & kept against her will until she escaped & hid in the young
man's car and then he was trying to do his job as well as trying to protect this young lady and it gets a little hairy.
But I would highly recommend it as it is an excellent book!!!!

If you have any interest in "How did they build that dam?", here's a good place to start looking for answers. Grey's hero, Biff, works at eleven different jobs on the construction site over the course of the book. Grey's strengths are his ability to paint a word picture of the surrounding geography and his description of the action. There are five action scenes and a romance to give some story in front of the canvas that he paints for us.

It's worth a read just to study the difference in the role of women between the 1930s and the present. And if you have an interest in Boulder City, Grey paints that scene for us on pages 26-27 and 77-80. This book should be in the guest room of every home in Boulder City.

Like I said typical Zane Grey. But a must read if you have ever made the trip or are thinking of treking to the Dam.

I recomment reading this book if you are at all interested in period history of the building of the Boulder/Hoover Dam.
Zane Grey's colorful depiction of that era is priceless.
The ambiance of that time and place really come to life. My father worked on the Dam, and this book is like the heart and soul of the project.

I prefer his Indian and settlers stories. That is the only reason that I am disappointed. I will stick to the stories I like best.
Boulder Dam is one of Zane Grey's best books, and it shows in his text. Every aspect of the construction is detailed with vivid description and accuracy. This book shows his care and love for his work as a writer of "good" historical romance. The wild and wooly west was still alive and present when the dam was built and Zane Grey covers the kind of illicit activity that was occurring when construction was taking place, and he tells of the dangers the men faced as the dam came into existence. The story is told through the eyes of one man who performs nearly all the jobs that made the dam possible, so the reader gets to "see" for himself what a colossal undertaking this was. Along the way he meets a girl in trouble and he helps her and, of course, falls in love. This is an excellent book and it makes one wonder why it took so long to get it published either before or after his death. Zane Grey is synonymous with the West and this book does not disappoint because it is "all there"--everything you would ever want in a book by Zane Grey. Five Stars all the way!
