In 1881, French developers began an attempt to build a canal linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Thirty-three years later, the project was finally completed by U.S. workers, changing shipping and travel routes forever. Readers will learn about the difficulties faced in planning and building the Panama Canal. They will also find out how the canal has shaped the world as we know it today.
