The Golden Gate Bridge

From the Series American Places: From Vision to Reality

On January 5, 1933, hundreds of workers began building a huge orange bridge in California. Braving strong currents and chilly waters, divers dove deep underwater to blast away rock to help construct the bridge’s two huge towers. Other workers risked their lives climbing to dizzying heights to install iron cables that stretched the length of the bridge. The workers pushed themselves to the extreme to complete one of the most magnificent suspension bridges in the world—The Golden Gate Bridge.

The Golden Gate Bridge traces the incredible story of the landmark, starting with the idea for the huge suspension bridge and ending with the unveiling of the massive structure. Large color photos, maps, and fact boxes enrich the captivating story, which is sure to engage even the most reluctant readers.
