Book Links, "Architecture and Construction" - Pat Scales

"Drawings and photographs, along with easy-to-read text, trace the engineering problems of building a bridge to withstand the "natural forces" of the San Francisco Bay. They were solved, though, and this book tells readers how." - Book Links, "Architecture and Construction"

School Library Journal - Mary Mueller, Rolla Public Schools (MO)

"In a welcome change from the normal series approach, these titles place each featured structure into the context of its natural and cultural environments while discussing how it reflects the society that built it. Authors explain engineering concepts, challenges, and construction processes so clearly that readers will understand how engineers overcame seemingly impossible problems to design and build these magnificent structures. . . .Good choice to introduce landmark structures and the engineering that made them possible." - School Library Journal
