Summary
A dozen men and women - engineers, designers, machinery operators, cable riggers - all employees of an international consortium, are charged with building a bridge somewhere in a mythical and fantastic California. Their collective effort to complete the megaproject recounts one of the oldest of human dramas, to domesticate and to radically transform our world through built form, with all the dramatic tension it brings: a threatened strike, an environmental dispute, sabotage, accidents, career moves, and love affairs
