I am loving this published author thing. Dutton/Dial has had my book for seven years and now I get to enjoy the release. Here's a brief quote from the Booklist review from Daniel Krauss...okay, I am squealing!
"...the step-by-step (it was a long process) descriptions of planning and dynamiting are fascinating, and Comport’s realistic illustrations of the various bridges and slings built all along the famous sculptures are eye-opening and reveal the project’s dizzying scope. Perfect for history units, this is a great piece of work about a great piece of work."
