David McCullough, The Path Between the Seas, Signed


The Story of the Panama Canal by an American Legend!

In stock


The Path Between the Seas is one of David McCullough’s histories that is also an epic adventure.

The building of the Panama Canal was one of the most grandiose, dramatic, and sweeping adventures of all time. Spanning nearly half a century, from its beginnings by a France in pursuit of glory to its completion by the United States on the eve of World War I, it enlisted men, nations, and money on a scale never seen in all of history.

The late David McCullough captured that tale with a novelistic urgency that was his hallmark.

Dust jacket stained and chipped with 1 inch loss at bottom of spine; else very good in dust jacket.
