"The Great Kinzua Bridge" (6" x 9") is 112 pages long with a story by Jim Gates and photographs by Ed Bernik. Featuring more than 150 photos and illustrations, this book includes rare nineteenth century images of the construction of the viaduct, and detailed photos of the steel restoration project undertaken in 1900. Vintage photography is complemented by dramatic contemporary images portraying the devastating destruction wreaked by a tornado in 2003, and aerial views of the new skywalk opened in 2011. The book is a educational pictorial history of the viaduct, digging into the details of this feat of engineering from the skills of its builders to the implicit wealth of the natural resources locked within the Pennsylvania wilderness.
