In 1869, construction began on the first steel-wire suspension bridge in the world. The massive bridge would link Brooklyn and Manhattan. Everyone was captivated by its progress. But when chief engineer Washington Roebling fell ill, the project seemed doomed to fail. Fortunately, Emily Warren Roebling stepped in, and thanks to her, the Brooklyn Bridge opened in 1883. Frieda Wishinsky's engaging text and Natalie Nelson's distinctive collage illustrations tell the inspiring story of how Emily Warren Roebling saved the bridge. Speech bubbles revealing imagined dialogue add a playful note to this historical account, which includes fascinating facts about the Brooklyn Bridge and a further reading list.--front flap
