Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Wortman offers technical information, history, and anecdotes for 12 bridges across the Willamette River, two across the Columbia River, and several railroad bridges in the Portland (Oregon) vicinity. Since the 1989 first edition, she has been leading bridge walks for children and adults, and has married a bridge engineer. The second edition adds more poetry, a couple of songs, a glossary of terms, a list of owners and web sites, and an index. The chronology has also been extended to 2001, and the captions updated. The superb line drawings of prospects and details are by Jay Dee Alley, about whom no more information is provided.
