Trapped Under The Sea

Crown Publishing

History is filled with stories of massive public works projects that cost lives to complete. 

The building of the Brooklyn Bridge alone killed some two dozen workers.  The cleaning up of Boston's filthy harbor was made possible by a long undersea tunnel for sewage... a tunnel workers had to traverse in order to complete the project.  Neil Swidey tells the story of their nearly impossible mission in the book Trapped Under the Sea.
